Product Description:

THE MEAN SEASON, based on a novel by John Katzenbach, tells the riveting story of disgruntled Miami newspaper reporter Malcolm Anderson (Kurt Russell), who decides to quit the news game after tiring of writing about murder. But before he leaves, he finds himself in the middle of the biggest story of his life when a serial killer decides to contact him. Apparently impressed by the journalist's prose style, the so-called Numbers Killer wants to use the media to promote his deadly activities and finds Anderson the perfect mouthpiece. Meanwhile, the notoriety feeds Anderson's own ego and ambition as well, and he heedlessly plunges ahead with his work--until the danger comes too close to home. THE MEAN SEASON features a terrific cast led by Russell, Andy Garcia, Joe Pantoliano, and Mariel Hemingway.
