Lightly amusing behind-the-scenes story of writer (David Duchovny) whose pilot for a network comedy-drama, inspired by his brother's suicide, is gradually watered down by the iron-fisted, velvet-gloved network president (Sigourney Weaver) with the empathetic but weak-willed British production head (Ioan Gruffudd) reluctant to intervene, and an erratic leading man (Fran Kranz) causing further headaches. Writer-director Jake Kasdan's perceptive satire on the television industry shows the lengths to which an artist is forced to compromise his vision. Contains repeated use of the f-word in a satiric context to show the vacuity of the superficial characters, other crude words and expressions, and mild profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
