The TV Set
I just saw The TV Set, a behind the scenes look of making a pilot and trying to get it on the air. The movie stars David Duchovny who plays a beleaguered writer whose pilot keeps getting watered down and compromised while all the other TV biz workers compromise their own principles, except Sigourney Weaver's character who never had any principles playing the TV executive who brags about having a hit show called Slut Wars. I think if you are interested in finding out about how or why there is so much terrible TV out there and like behind the scenes-type movies, you would like this movie but it may be a little too insideree for some. I liked it and especially got a kick out of Weaver's character's denseness. The TV Set is mild and fun satire.
