what going on?


An unsettling look at reality television, where a disturbing game show has its contestants ending their lives for the public’s enjoyment.┬áDuring the final scene of a live reality TV show in Seattle, “Married to a Millionaire”, the jilted bride shoots dead the millionaire who rejected her. She then takes aim at the bride he chose, but the show’s host, Adam Rogers (Duhamel), throws himself in front of her, saving her life. Her attempt thwarted, the jilted bride places the gun barrel in her mouth and pulls the trigger. Adam is then hailed as a hero. On the same station’s morning show the following day, Adam, still stunned from the previous day’s events, insists he is not a hero, and rants that the horrific outcome is his fault, the fault of the network, and that of all those who indulge in such entertainment. He is summoned to a meeting of the network execs, headed by Ilana Katzenberg (Janssen), President of programming. Believing his outburst has put his job at risk, he is shocked to find that, instead of being fired, he is asked to host a new show, during which contestants will commit suicide in a live broadcast. Adamant against promoting death, he refuses the offer and walks out. The next day, he decides to accept the offer, but only on the condition that this platform be used to encourage viewers to appreciate life, as he feels a higher purpose is involved. His producer, Sylvia Rowland (FitzGerald), doesn’t wish to be a part of the show in any form, but is under contract and has no other option.
