Network is the story of UBS, the Little Network that Couldn't, and its star newscaster, Howard Beale, who was traded for Borat on the first annual International Anchor Swap Day in 1974.

Howard, upon returning from Kazakhstan has become an immortal Highlander due to an accidentally needle stick. From there, he lives through all the ages of television (pre- and -postMTV). He does battle with the other TV greats, each of them seeking the key to the Ultimate Show that will grant them total viewership. The Final Showdown takes place between him and Simon Cowell.
