In the 1970s, the name James L. Brooks (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Taxi, Terms of Endearment, The Simpsons) was synonymous with intelligent television comedy - his shows were insightful about work and love and always tapped into the zeitgeist. With his transition to film in the 1980s, he became a master Hollywood storyteller, and none of his films was more quintessentially Brooks than Broadcast News. This caustic inside look at the Washington news media stars Holly Hunter (Raising Arizona, The Piano), in her breakout role, as a feisty television producer torn between an ambitious yet dim anchorman (William Hurt) and her closest confidant, a cynical veteran reporter (Albert Brooks). Brooks's witty, gently prophetic entertainment is a captivating transmission from an era in which ideas on love and media were rapidly changing.

Der hektische Alltag eines Nachrichtensenders lässt nur wenig Zeit fürs Privatleben. Das von Jane (Oscar®-Gewinnerin Holly Hunter), der ehrgeizigen TV-Moderatorin, gerät mächtig durcheinander als sie ihren neuen Kollegen Tom (William Hurt)kennenlernt. Er ist gutaussehend, charmant, sexy - Jane ist völlig hin und weg! Sehr zum Leidwesen des klugen und hilfsbereiten Aaron (Albert Brooks), mit dem sie eine langjährige Freundschaft verbindet. Als der unqualifizierte Tom zu allem Übel auch noch die große Chance als Moderator erhält, die sich Aaron schon lange wünscht, ist das beruflich-private Chaos schon vorprogrammiert...
