Leoni Online: The Articles — Los Angeles Magazine 1997

The naked truth about Téa Leoni is a tale of one very powerful producer, two rival networks and 30 million viewers. Now, she’s been handed the hottest time slot in TV history. Pressure? What Pressure? It’s late Wednesday afternoon – run through day in televisionland – and Soundstage 20 on NBC’s Burbank lot is packed. A run-through is usually an intimate affair among the show’s cast, crew and staff, but more than twice the usual number of people have squeezed onto the set for this preview of The Naked Truth, which will determine the fate of the series. Millions of dollars, three years of work and the reputations of several very powerful people are riding on the next 30 minutes.
