Summary: In the executive offices of the four major networks sweeping changes are taking place and billions of dollars are at stake. Now Bill Carter bestselling author of ''The Late Shift'' goes behind the scenes to reveal the inner workings of the television industry capturing the true portraits of the larger-than-life moguls and stars who make it such a cutthroat business.
