Lip Service ★★★ 1988

Satirical comedy-drama about the TV news industry. An ambitious young newscaster befriends a veteran reporter. He then manipulates his way to replace him on the reporter's morning program. Dooley as the veteran and Dunne as the upstart are fun to watch in this welldone cable ripoff of “Broadcast News.” 67m/C VHS . Griffin Dunne, Paul Dooley; D: William H. Macy. CABLE
