Summary, etc.:
Romantic triangle set in the world of television news. Tom Grunick is the perfect modern anchorman. He's got the smooth charm and handsome good looks that America loves. Jane Craig is the brilliant hot-shot producer, committed to fighting the trend toward flashy, style-over-substance "personality" news, whose job it now is to make Tom look like a newsman. Aaron Altman is the dedicated reporter, utterly devoid of on-camera charisma, who's jealous and resentful of Tom's instant success both on camera with the public and off camera with Jane.
