Perfect Stranger

Synopsis: Rowena Price is a muckraking reporter for a New York paper. When her story about a closeted gay Senator who preaches family values is spiked, she quits and soon finds herself investigating the grisly murder of a childhood friend. Her friend had been dumped by ad exec Harrison Hill, so he's Rowena's prime suspect. Rowena gets a job at the ad agency as a temp, and she's soon the object of Hill's attentions. She's helped in her subterfuge by Miles Haley, a friend at the paper who has a secret thing for her. Everyone, it seems, has secrets, including Hill, who must keep his affairs from his wife - her money fuels his lifestyle. Murder will out?

Take a couple weeks off.

You've earned the break.

I'm gonna go back to the office

right now.

This guy's got a stack

of interns, trust me.

Kolski wants you to take

a couple of weeks off.

That's not a request.

Okay, wait, hold up.

Please tell me...'re not saying because the paper

endorsed Sachs' last campaign...

...that he's off-limits now.

Please tell me that is not

what you're saying.

-What's up, Narron?

-Get this, Miles.

Tomorrow's headline:

"Free Press Dead."

Kolski wants to shut me down

because I went after the senator.

Does it ever get to you, Narron?

The idea that we're supposed to be

reporting the news not covering it up?

Like we couldn't show the dead

bodies coming back from lraq.

If you don't see it,

means it never happened.

Your source ran dry.

-My source didn't run dry.

-You can't try to cover up--

My source was paid off.

This is a good story, Narron.

The story's dead.


Powerful men

protecting powerful men.

I backed you when you wanted


...when you wanted to write under

an old boy's name.

This is not the first time you shut me

down but this is definitely the last.

So you tell Kolski keep his paid

vacation because I fucking quit.

Taxi. Hey.


Rowena. Wait up.

Wait. Wait.



-Grace. Shit, you scared me.

You didn't return my phone calls.

Well, yeah, I've been pretty busy

working out of town.

Oh, yeah. The Senator Sachs scandal.

Don't worry. I didn't tell anyone.

Besides, I got a better story for you.

It's about Harrison Hill.

-Come on.

-We met online.

We did.

He was giving a Q and A, I e-mailed

him and told him how great it was.

You know, stroke a man's dick

and you get him for one night.

Stroke his ego,

you get him for life, huh?

Yeah, we sort of struck up
