Profit

Profit (1996) – House of Acquisitions

Picture this: A power hungry, psychopathic executive with a tortured past strives to climb up the corporate ladder by any means necessary. Doesn’t matter gets in the way – they are going down.

In a nutshell that’s what FOX’s 1996 drama Profit and it’s titular character, Jim Profit (Adrian Pasdar), are all about.

With popular shows these days like Empire and House of Cards that revolve around ruthless, manipulative, backstabbing liars you love to hate or hate to love this show would fit right in. (Profit even narrates the show himself). But apparently 1996 wasn’t ready – despite positive reviews FOX cancelled it after airing just 4 episodes due to low ratings. Total 8 were shot.

After reading how good it was I had to check it out for myself.
What a good decision that was.
