Additional Information

Additional Information
A series of freak accidents on the Los Angeles freeway traps a cast-load of familiar TV faces in an astounding traffic tie-up, with the entire system caught in a gridlock that John Beck, as a traffic expert, endeavors to unsnarl. Howard Hesseman plays the voice of an unseen radio disc jockey whose happy-talk commentary throughout keeps the stranded motorists entertained.

In this made-for-TV farce, the urban phenomenon of the traffic jam and the effect it has on the lives of the participants is examined.
