Trailer - 'Live!' (Eva Mendes)

Ehhh... I like the concept, but the execution doesn't excite me much.

The story goes...
A television executive (Eva Mendes) develops what she hopes will become the most watched television show of all time, the ultimate reality show called "Live!" where contestants play Russian Roulette with a loaded gun.

As she struggles to overcome the challenges by the broadcast authorities, her network, and the show's advertisers, a maverick documentary filmmaker records every detail of her glamorous, high powered life.

The documentary filmmaker then becomes involved in the making of the show by creating biographical segments about the contestants, who include a young, struggling writer, an extreme sports star, a man trying to save his family's farm, an aspiring actress, a former super model turned performance artist, and a young immigrant determined to help his family.

Apparently, only those in UK will see it, starting in September.

    Typical Hollywood schlock. Paddy Chayefsky did it better with Network in the 70's. Eva Mendes is cast in the old Faye Dunaway role. Did this director think he had an original idea?
