Synopsis of Movie

" TV as it was meant to be seen. In a movie theater”

Weird Al brings his talent of musical parodies to the movies. A local public station gets a new owner played by Weird Al. The station becomes a hit, with all sorts of hilarious site gags and wacky humor.

The wortless daydreaming slob George Newman can't keep a job for more than a few days at a time before he gets fired. Fortunately, his uncle wins a UHF television station in a poker-game (it was almost bankrupt), which George Newman is put in charge of. Will the new job be any different from the last few jobs he's had?
