  • The personal and professional misadventures of an opinionated but beloved woman working as a TV journalist.

  • Murphy Brown is a very selfish, stubborn, extremely hot-tempered but also talented, resourceful, clever and caring middle-aged reporter who works for FYI News Network and at the same time tries to raise her child as an unmarried, working woman. Her friends and co-workers, Corky, Jim, Frank and Miles, try to balance between her outbursts of anger and her family, personality or even financial crises. It's a difficult life for Murphy but she's got the guts to live it...

  • Murphy Brown is one of TV's most honored journalists. Brilliant and persistent, Murphy is unafraid to ask tough questions of the mighty. She is also an unabashed liberal who is considered an enemy of George Bush's White House. Murphy works for "FYI," a Washington-based network TV newsmagazine series. A recovering alcoholic, Murphy returns from a stay at the Betty Ford rehabilitation center, free of booze and cigarettes -- and correspondingly cranky. Her TV show has a new producer, a whiz-kid half Murphy's age. She's also working with an airheaded ex-Miss America, a befuddled anchorman and her best friend, a danger-loving gonzo reporter. Can Murphy Brown make a comeback to be the best in the business? How can she not!
