Overview

When a news commentator threatens to shoot himself live on air, the struggling network is torn between ethics and ratings – until the message gets out of control. A blistering satire of sensationalism, this 1976 black comedy masterpiece asks how far the media will go and what we will trade for success.

Starring Faye Dunaway, William Holden, Peter Finch, and Robert Duvall, Network received 10 Academy Award nominations, winning Best Actor (Finch), Best Actress (Dunaway), Best Supporting Actress (Beatrice Straight) and Best Original Screenplay (Paddy Chayefsky).
