Delivery man Dexter Jackson’s (Carson) dream is to be a television news anchor, a gig he spends every moment practicing for. His big break comes during an active hostage situation where his heroic efforts earn him the respect of his community and a cushy reporting gig as the only Black newsman at a local network. Soon enough, though, he’s pushed by a craven, ratings-hungry producer to deliver sleazy exposés on his friends & neighbors.
