Synopsis

Based largely on the 1983 trial in Los Angeles of Dr. Carl A. Galloway against both CBS and Dan Rather, following a Rather report on "60 Minutes" linking the doctor with a pill-dispensing clinic, this fictional account (filmed in Toronto) parallels the case to a great extent, pitting a small-time lawyer (Tess Harper) against a smug television journalist, claiming "Reckless Disregard" for the truth and reputation of a slandered doctor. Made-for-cable with a basically Canadian cast and crew.
