Mind Games
In the hour-long drama MIND GAMES, Clark Edwards (Steve Zahn) was headed for a brilliant academic career until his unmedicated bipolar disorder, and a penchant for a female undergrad, got him fired. His brother, Ross Edwards (Christian Slater), was holding down his own brilliant career in finance before he was convicted for fraud and spent two years in prison. The brothers are down but definitely not out, since they've concocted a scheme to use Clark's psychological and motivational expertise to influence the decisions of others on behalf of their clients. It's a crazy idea, and the volatile relationship between the brothers injects its own drama, as Ross tries to keep Clark from going off the rails, and Clark battles Ross' more sociopathic tendencies. But despite their many, many flaws, Clark and Ross find they have a way to use their talents: for good, at last.
