Plot Outline:

Lee Gates is a larger-than-life TV personality who has made a name for himself hawking financial advice on a network TV and putting Wall Street in its place. But after touting a tech stock that mysteriously tanks, an investor who lost everything takes the host and crew hostage. That leaves Gates and his ace producer Patty Fenn having to work on two fronts - staying alive and figuring out why the stock suddenly crashed. -- Chris Kavan

Die ist, wie nicht anders zu erwarten, gut gemeint und sehr altbacken. Die Handlung kennen wir bereits, zumindest sämtliche Elemente, die hier zusammen geklebt werden. Schliesslich tritt der kleine Mann auf, der Lastwagenfahrer Kyle (Jack O'Connell), der durch Lees Tipps alles verloren hat. Er will sich rächen, während live gesendet...
