"It is 10:30 pm on July 1st, 1934 - the same day that the Production Code Association was formed to enforce the draconian censorship of the Hay's Code - and a pair of screenwriters struggles to finish their script by the midnight deadline. Late Night at the Mad Lion Studios is a fast-paced screwball comedy about the making of a screwball comedy, on the eve of a decision that had decades-long consequences on Hollywood.
