Late Show The
Detective Renée Ballard works 'The Late Show', the notorious graveyard shift at the LAPD. It's thankless work for a once-promising detective, keeping strange hours in a twilight world of crime. Some nights are worse than others. And tonight is the worst yet. Two shocking cases, hours apart: a brutal assault, and a multiple murder with no suspects. Ballard knows it is always darkest before dawn.
The "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Late Shift" delivers "a boisterous, two-timing, high-stakes drama about the business of comedy" ("The Associated Press"). No one is more uniquely suited to document television's latest late- night travesty than veteran media reporter and bestselling author, Bill Carter. NBC's CEO, Jeff Zucker, had it all worked out when he moved Jay Leno from behind the desk at "The Tonight Show," and handed the reins over to Conan O'Brien.
Aging private eye Ira Wells (Academy Award winner* Art Carney) has agreed to help a Hollywood kook named Margo (Lily Tomlin) locate her missing cat. Little does he know hes got a tiger by the tail. Written and directed by three-time Oscar winner* Robert Benton (Kramer vs. Kramer), The Late Show is a brilliant, funny and gutsy modern-day homage to 40s detective thrillers.
