This black comedy, which skewers the television news industry, is about an eclectic ensemble of recently graduated journalism students, all thrown together for their first reporting jobs at a tiny backwoods television station in Denton, Nebraska. This group includes Stephanie, the reporter who is sleeping with everyone but the cows to keep her noon anchor slot; Brad, so insecure that he has changed his name five times in a quest for one that sounds ‘punchy’; Brenda, the weight obsessed, diet-pill-popping Health Reporter; Nathan, imagine Charles Kuralt with Tourettes Syndrome, and finally, our leads, the idealistic Kevin, and the tough, whip-smart, but vulnerable Amanda.
