Platinum (TV Movie) (1997)

A two-hour TV movie on CTV which is a cynical examination of the music biz, corporate corruption and how art and the human soul can and do get squashed by greed and a lack of integrity.

Simon Tucker, the president of a hot indie label with integrity (Platinum) is all hot and bothered by an all-female punk band called Ophelia... and especially by their crimson-haired singer Astrid. The problem is simple. Ophelia is being wooed by slimey don't-care-about-music, just-wearing-nice-suits execs from a bigger, rival record company (Archangel). Only the problem isn't really so simple, because Tucker's professional partner Michelle Michaud is busy makin' clandestine deals with the hunk from Archangel.
