''Action'' was a [[ScrewedByTheNetwork short-lived]] Creator/{{Fox}} series (September-December, 1999. One further episode was broadcast in August, 2000) , starring comedian Jay Mohr as ruthless movie producer Peter Dragon, who's just had the biggest bomb of his career, and is now trying to get his comeback movie, ''Beverly Hills Gun Club'', made. Not an easy task. Helping him is his new partner, Wendy Ward (Creator/IlleanaDouglas), and his [[HonoraryUncle Uncle]] Lonny (Creator/BuddyHackett). Also, there are Peter's assistant, [[StraightGay Stuart Glazer]], and the film's irritable, unsavvy writer, [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Adam Rafkin]]. Together, they deal with prima donna actors, crazy directors and the arrogant studio head, Bobby G, who also happens to be Peter's ex-wife's StraightGay current husband. [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Should never have been cancelled.]]
