LOG-LINE: A one-hour episodic television series based on the behind the scenes activities and shenanigans of a fictitious black owned cable television network.
SYNOPSIS: Set in the mid 1990’s (the hey day of the cable television industry) NETWORK OPERATIONS is one-hour episodic TV series based on the behind the scenes activities of the Black Urban Network (BUN). The center or the “hub” of every cable or broadcast television station is its operations department, usually referred to as master control or “network operations”. It is the virtual core of a television station’s universe. This is the one place where every employee, from the CEO to the maintenance worker, comes in contact with one another. It is the place where some gather to gossip about fellow employees and discuss current events, while others come to receive an encouraging word or engage in stimulating intellectual conversation. It can also be a place of the bizarre and the unusual. It’s a shining example of a network’s dysfunction and a barometer of its relative health. This is the place where the true nature of the organization is revealed. Such is the case of the Network Operations Department at BUN affectionately known to its employees as “Net Ops”.
