Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapaport run the celebrity tabloid show "Skylark Tonight". When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, they are recruited by the CIA to assassinate him.
The crew came up with the storage closet joke on the spot as they were about to film.

While still in New York, Skylark's broadcast is interrupted by a news alert about North Korea. This could never happen in an actual situation, the producers of the newscast would have been required to give a minimum 3 minute warning before taking their air.
The movie opens with the Columbia Pictures logo used until 1976.
