Product Description:

This critically acclaimed Canadian comedy series satirizes the world of mass media through the devious office politics of a television news station in Toronto. Writer/director Ken Finkleman stars as the station's unscrupulous director George Findlay who, when he isn't busy repairing his BMW or searching for the perfect bran muffin, leads a team of cynical writers (Mark Farrell, Jeremy Hotz, Karen Hines), a dimwitted anchorman (Peter Keleghan), and a surly intern (Tanya Allen) through the absurdities of news broadcasting. This box set includes all 13 episodes of the short-lived series, considered to be one of Canada's finest.
