William H. Macy, three-time Tony Award nominee Raúl Esparza and television's hottest new star Elisabeth Moss star in Speed-The-Plow. One dirty rotten scoundrel joins two dirty rotten scoundrels in David Mamet's sizzling and sexy take on Hollywood deal making and deal breaking.

Directed by Neil Pepe, it’s a behind the scenes story of handshaking, dealbreaking, backstabbing and moviemaking as only Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet can tell it.
