Caesar Fortunato is the greatest sports director ever. If you're not sure about that, just ask him. He'll tell you that he invented the instant replay. The blimp shot. The ”up close and personal“ feature. In fact, if you asked him, Caesar Fortunato would tell you that without him sports broadcasting would be a wasteland, not worth watching. And he might be right.
Caesar has directed Super Bowls, NBA championship games, Wimbledon, the Olympics. When he's hot, Caesar can make the worst game look like a spectacle and a good game look like art. The problem is that he is as arrogant about his abilities as he is good at his job. And he believes that entitles him to be as unkind to network presidents as he is to lowly production assistants.
So, when Caesar finally makes a mistake, all the little people he's screamed at and all the suits he's snubbed over the years get their revenge. He quickly finds himself on the street and then on the run when creative differences with a Hollywood A-list actor get physical. Before he totally self-destructs, though, Caesar gets one last chance to transform chaos into broadcast beauty. It'll be live, global, and impossible to pull off. Maybe.
, Emmy Award-winning television writer, producer, and director Brian Brown offers the truest story yet told about what goes on behind the cameras in the television industry, as reflected in the rise, fall, and redemption of broadcasting's ultimate insider. In telling Caesar's story, Brown turns a revealing lens on the media's madness and madmen, as well as the power and all the possibility inherent in the medium that so pervades our lives. It's a riveting inside look at some of the most ephemeral, idiotic art ever created and the modern spectacle that is sports in all its brute, heartbreaking beauty.
Sometimes you can only tell the truth by resorting to fiction....
