“So what people watch on TV, it’s got nothing to do with the real world?”
Renowned playwright Jason Sherman’s caustic look at the entertainment industry, Copy That takes us behind the scenes of network television. Four writers struggle to get their new cop show approved for production. When the team’s only Black writer is roughed up by an actual cop, the fallout threatens to not only kill the show, but expose the systemic racism at the heart of popular entertainment itself.
From the author of last season’s moving account of the life of Marshall McLuhan (The Message).
