Candice Bergen (The Book Club) reunites with her original cast members for this revival of ground-breaking comedy Murphy Brown, about a broadcast news legend and her biting take on current events.
Approaching its 30th anniversary, Murphy Brown returns to a world of 24-hour cable, social media, "fake" news and a vastly different political and cultural climate.
With the nation divided, national discourse in a state of chaos, and attacks on the press rampant, Murphy (Bergen) decides to return to the airwaves and recruits her FYI team: lifestyle reporter Corky Sherwood (Faith Ford), investigative journalist Frank Fontana (Joe Regalbuto) and her former wunderkind news producer Miles Silverberg (Grant Shaud).
Joining them is social media director Pat Patel, tasked with bringing Murphy and the team into the 21st century. Murphy's millennial son Avery shares his mother's competitive spirit and quick wit, and he is also following in her journalistic footsteps — perhaps too closely.
The team still lets off steam at Phil's Bar, now run by his sister, Phyllis (Emmy® winner Tyne Daly), a Washington insider who is also Murphy's confidant.
Now back in the game, Murphy is determined to draw the line between good television and honest reporting, proving that the world needs Murphy Brown now more than ever.
