Late Show

Deutschland 1998/1999, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Welcome to the cutthroat world of entertainment.

Scheffer's colleague and ex-lover Carla, on the other hand, is quite thrilled; she is working her way up the ladder of success and Hannes will fit right into her schemes. Scheffer, who is congratulating himself on having saved the day, is completely flabbergasted when Dr. August Beer, one of the station's financiers, tells him off. Beer has been impatiently waiting for the station to go bankrupt...
