An arrogant television executive faced with dwindling ratings hires America’s favorite news anchor to host a popular reality show. Meanwhile, a TV addict with an unhealthy obsession for her teeters on the edge as tensions in his house rise and explode into a drama that holds the nation riveted. Filled with comedic satire, Our House examines a culture that is fascinated with transforming sobering crisis into sexy entertainment. For mature audiences only, due to violent content and strong language.
