Chuck Dowling’s review:
If you took the "Studio 60" stuff out of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and just focused on Jordan’s character and her job as network head, you’d get something like THE TV SET, a fine little movie about one man’s attempt to get his TV pilot on the air. David Duchovny plays the writer attempting to get his show "The Wexler Chronicles" through the pilot process, while fighting studio idiocy at every turn.
I have absolutely no doubt that this is *exactly* how it works in television. Great ideas and great stories are constantly squashed because the network head’s teenage daughter simply doesn’t like the title of the show, or something else equally as stupid. If you’re as weary of network television as I am, this is a must see.
