"LateLine" was an American
TV sitcomthat ran on NBCfrom March 17, 1998, through March 16, 1999. Due to an abrupt cancellation, there were seven unaired episodes (three of which were telecast by the Showtimecable/satellite television channelin December 1999).
John Markusand Al Franken(the latter of whom co-starred in the series), "LateLine" depicted the behind-the-scenes goings-on of a fictitious late-night television news broadcast, patterned in part after the long-running ABC program "Nightline". Many plotlines in the series were satirical, dealing with topics like Deep Throatand the Watergatebreak-in, and the episodes often had cameos by famous politicians.
August 17, 2004, Paramount released a DVDset containing all nineteen episodes on three discs.
