27 May 2000 | by sbktexSee all my reviews

We get this in Dallas on Friday nights on PBS as "The Industry".

I'm not sure what's stopping this show from being a perfect 10.. great cast and writing, IMPECCABLE cinematography.. maybe Bonus points for veracity of vanity and precision of mannerisms and quirks. Maybe a micron weak when 'out of the office' doing 'Beaver Creek' shoots..

The age old adage.. "Why can't Hollywood.. "
