30-minute scripted comedy series
She’s back! In a world of 24-hour cable, social media, “fake news,” and a vastly different political climate, the world needs Murphy Brown more than ever! The revival of the ground-breaking comedy about the eponymous broadcast news legend and her biting take on current events returns amid a divided America, chaotic discourse, and rampant attacks on the press. Murphy returns with her original FYI team: lifestyle reporter Corky Sherwood, investigative journalist Frank Fontana, and producer Miles Silverberg. Murphy’s son, Avery, shares his mother’s competitive spirit and quick wit, and has followed in her journalistic footsteps – perhaps too closely. Now back in the game, Murphy is determined to draw the line between ratings-grabbing headlines and honest reporting.
