SynopsisIn a world where reality and entertainment are continuously colliding, Live! follows ABN network president Katy Courbet and her team as inspiration strikes to create the most daring reality program ever. The show is Russian Roulette, network style, with contestants competing for five million dollars on-air, complete with a loaded gun. Live! examines the competitive and often gut-wrenching world of television production, where everyone from the crew to the contestants to the network brass becomes engulfed in a ratings battle where questions of morality and ethics lead to a dark, sick and unforgettable outcome.
