Set at the time of the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, The Wrath of Connie revolves around TV icon Connie Frederick, who had a hit television variety show in the '60s and '70s, but not much success since then. The network hires edgy, 20-something writers to try and make Connie just as edgy and outrageous as they are. Connie clearly draws the line of comedy in a very different place than they do, and she draws the line between what is appropriate behavior between men and women in a very different place as well. She soon realizes that her views need to shift if she hopes to fit into this modern world.
