Set in a post-apocalyptic world dominated by the media, this British satire offers the origin of Max Headroom (Matt Frewer), a computer-generated pseudo-clone of a slain newsman (also played by Frewer). Created and directed by music-video alums Annabel Jankel and Rocky Morton, the feature served as the pilot for a short-lived U.S. TV program.
