BROADCAST NEWS (CD)
Composed by: Bill Conti

MINT - SEALED

Despite writing a charming and infectious score for one of the year’s biggest hits, Bill Conti continued to be one of the most unrepresented composers of the day when it came to soundtrack releases and "Broadcast News" joined many other classic scores of his to go without an album. Nearly twenty years later we finally bring Bill Conti’s lovely score for "Broadcast News" to his many fans.

This world premiere CD release presents over one hour of music which Conti wrote for this film and includes a selection of alternate and preliminary cues which went through substantial revision before the final cut.

SYNOPSIS - Writer/director/producer James L. Brooks scores on all counts with this clear-eyed look at the television news business and the dysfunctional types who work in it. Brooks' intelligent script introduces us to Jane Craig (Holly Hunter), an ambitious producer at the network news division's Washington D.C. branch, who is calm under fire yet has a good cry at her desk every morning over her empty personal life. Jane works well with Aaron Altman (Albert Brooks), an excellent reporter who lacks the visual charisma to make him a star. Into their lives comes Tom Grunick (William Hurt), a regional newscaster who admits he can't write news and doesn't understand many of the events he's covering, but has the presence and physical appeal that the increasingly entertainment-oriented network wants for its news programs. Jane is also physically attracted to him, which drives her crazy, because Grunick stands for everything she's fighting against in the news business, while Altman is devastated by her attraction because he secretly yearns for Jane. As Grunick becomes a rising star at the network, and layoffs of the old guard loom, the three leads deal with their feelings for each other, their careers, and their values. Hunter, Hurt, and Brooks are all superb, as is the excellent supporting cast (including an unbilled turn by Jack Nicholson as the network's smarmy national anchor). Brooks' script is funny, poignant, gritty, and brutally honest in its examinations of the television industry and the ways in which professionals interact on and off the job. 1987
