A killer comedy by Robert Wuhl
Directed by Steven W. Wallace and Robert Wuhl
In the screwball traditions of Preston Sturges and the Coen Brothers, Hit Lit is a romantic comedy set in today's dog-eat-dog publishing world in New York City. Hit Lit tells the story of Phoebe Saint-Anne, an ambitious young executive desperate to make a name for herself by coming up with a best-selling book. When she mistakenly witnesses what she thinks is a murder, she seizes this opportunity and hires the “hit-man” to write his autobiography.
