I just saw this yesterday. I liked it a lot. I love the Duchov in a comedy.
Jake Kasdan seems to be doing the "one for them, one for me" thing. I was a big fan of his first movie Zero Effect. He followed that with the Jack Black vehicle Orange County which was duller than the place it's named for. The TV Set preceded Walk Hard.
Anyway, Duchovny plays a writer trying to get a smart and personal pilot off the ground in the face of studio interference. The acting is excellent all around. Sigourney Weaver gives her best performance in ages as a wonderfully braindead executive. Judy Greer is great as always. Matt Besser has a brief, movie-stealing role where he walks a test audience through the absurd process they're about to participate in.
It's funny, well written and incredibly depressing. Kasdan is clearly working from experience here. It's a wonder any good shows make it to television.
