Description In Speed-the-Plow, David Mamet’s attention is squarely on a world he knows all too well – show business. Studio executives Bobby Gould and Charlie Fox came up together in Hollywood’s dog-eat-dog world. Today, Bobby is one step ahead and has the authority to green light a project of his choosing. Just this morning, Charlie has landed a surefire blockbuster with a star attached. With millions of dollars on the line, every move is a gamble.

The wildcard in this deck is a temporary secretary called Karen, an outsider with ideas of her own.
