Between the Lines

A fresh and uncluttered look at what goes on behind the scenes at a grubby, underpaid but undaunted little newspaper.

John Heard Lindsay Crouse Jeff Goldblum Jill Eikenberry Bruno Kirby Gwen Welles

A fresh and uncluttered look at what goes on behind the scenes at a grubby, underpaid but undaunted little newspaper.

Where it is strong is partially due to the excellently-written script, partially due to the overall firstrate acting by the entire cast.

It’s a series of inter-relationships, professionally and romantically, between staff photographer Lindsay Crouse and top investigative reporter John Heard; reporter-cum-bookwriter Stephen Collins and staffer Gwen Welles; plus the story of underpaid and overworked rock music critic Jeff Goldblum, copyboy and would-be reporter Bruno Kirby and the other oddballs who work for the newspaper, due to be taken over any day by a communications conglomerate.
