The incredible Ed Asner stars as Grant, the no-nonsense city editor of The Los Angeles Tribune. Leading his staff as they investigate a range of challenging topics, the principled, lovable Lou ceaselessly strives to bring the best news coverage possible to the City Of Angels.
Aided as always by a tremendous ensemble cast (including Robert Walden, Linda Kelsey, Mason Adams, Daryl Anderson, Jack Bannon, and Nancy Marchand) and quality, high-minded storytelling, Asner shines in each and every one of Lou Grant's twenty four Season Five episodes, whose themes reverberate just as strongly today as when they first aired.
