An all-star cast bites the hand that feeds them in 'The TV Set', an insightful and fast-moving satirical look at the world of network television development. 'The TV Set' follows an idealistic writer Mike (David Duchovny) as he tries to navigate his TV pilot down the mine-laden path from script through production to the madness of prime-time scheduling. Along the way he has to juggle the agendas of a domineering network executive Lenny (Sigourney Weaver), volatile young stars, a pregnant wife and an ever-optimistic personal manager. His vision of a guy brought back to his home town by his brother's suicide and rediscovers his joy in life, is slowly eroded by a Lenny who favors trashy reality programming like Slut Wars. The irony is that every crass suggestion she makes improves the show's response from test audiences and thus brings the show a step closer to getting on the air. Desperate to get his show aired can Mike stay true to his vision?
