Beggars and Choosers (TV series)

.

The tongue-in-cheek series centered on Rob Malone, President of LGT, and his efforts to boost the network's sagging ratings with Lori Volpone, the scheming Vice-President of Development, and Malcolm Laffley, a gay man who came out of the closet to clear himself of sexual harassment charges levied against him by a woman. Each episode provided amusing insight into how a network runs, from how its executives deal with temperamental stars to how they make big budget deals while trying to keep the network financially stable.

In 2000, Carl Reiner was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his appearance on the show. The series was nominated for a 2001 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding TV Comedy Series.
