George Newman is given control of a UHF station by his gambling Uncle Harvey. Under his leadership, U62 becomes a powerhouse of original programming, like "Wheel of Fish" and "Celebrity Mud Wrestling" (with special guest Mikhail Gorbachev). When the little station-that-could starts threatening the ratings of a network affiliate, Channel 8’s sadistic head honcho plans to stomp on the competition, by any means necessary. Written by Weird Al Yankovic with director Levey, and packed with literally thousands of jokes and gags, UHF is essentially a vehicle for the God of Musical Parody, to ply his satirical trade.


This screening is part of the larger thematic series:
