Movie Preview: The TV Set

While the networks prep their Fall pilots, the rest of us wonder how so many laughably bad shows get made, even as truly great series disappear forever. Perhaps we should ask writer and director Jake Kasdan, whose new movie, The TV Set, hits theaters on Friday, April 6. Kasdan was one of the creative forces behind the short-lived but much-beloved "Freaks and Geeks," so it's fitting that he's now making a movie about the making of a TV pilot.

The TV Set — tagline: "a place where dreams are canceled" — follows scribe Mike Klein (a scruffy David Duchovny) as he attempts to rescue his show, "The Wexler Chronicles," from death by committee. I'm glad to see Duchovny back on the big screen, and the supporting cast also looks promising, including Sigourney Weaver as the persuasive network executive, Willie Garson ("Sex and the City"), and Justin Bateman.

The premise sounds great, and the trailer makes me laugh, but for some reason, The TV Set's 89-minute runtime makes me nervous. I'm still putting it on my "to see" list, though, so watch the trailer and tell me me what you think when you
