Project Description

‘Breaking News The Series’ takes readers behind the scenes of the fast-paced, exhilarating, emotionally-charged world of local television news. Filled with an outrageous cast of characters and unbelievable but all-too-real scenarios, each page turn brings surprising acts of back-stabbing, hilarious sexual innuendo and snake-in-the-grass sabotage.

Watching local television news will never be the same once you read episode one of the provocative and equally hilarious new 13-episode novel set ‘Breaking News The Series.’ In their debut publishing project, broadcast news veterans and now authors, R.E. Schicchi and D.K. Johnson take readers behind the scenes of the fast-paced, exhilarating and emotionally-charged world of WKMI; a fictional yet all-too-real South Florida-based television news station.

“The title of our book says it all,” explains author R. E. Schicchi. “‘Breaking News The Series’ truly conveys all the nuances of local news and once readers dive in and meet the cast of whacky characters there’s no doubt they will think twice while watching local news; wondering what is really going on when the cameras are not rolling. It’s definitely a fun read!”

“Creating ‘Breaking News The Series’ has been such an exciting journey!” says author D.K. Johnson. “After spending almost fifteen years in major-market newsrooms we felt the time was right to dish some dirt on some of the most insane situations one can witness in the workplace. Because we lived it, we created true-to-life characters readers will either love, or love to hate.”

Filled with an outrageous cast of characters and unbelievable scenarios, each page turn brings surprising acts of back-stabbing, hilarious sexual innuendo and snake-in-the-grass sabotage. Thanks to ‘Breaking News The Series’ there’s no doubt that when it comes to television news every man, woman, anchor, reporter, producer, writer and editor is out for themselves!
