Synopsis >

Instead of working at WNYX, the NewsRadio cast are the crew aboard the ocean liner, the Titanic. With Dave as its captain and Jimmy the fateful ship's owner, their colleagues serve as the rest of the crew, from the aristocratic and stuffy Bill down to the lowly and impoverished Walt. As Dave puts Matthew on iceberg watch, Bill complains about Walt being allowed out of steerage. And while Bill warns of the dire consequences of allowing the upper and lower classes to mix, Matthew refuses to take his job seriously. Warned of Walt's designs on Lisa, Dave gives her an elaborate and expensive diamond necklace for her birthday. But as Bill continues to try and convince Dave that strong action against Walt is justified, Matthew's inattentiveness causes the great ship to hit an iceberg. And as Jimmy and Joe try to convince everyone that things are fine, they begin to sink. As Joe struggles to stop the leak that is taking them down, Walt is determined to sketch Lisa's portrait as a birthday gift. But she would rather devote her attention to getting herself and her collection of artwork safely off the ship. As Joe comes to grips with the magnitude of the disaster, Jimmy and Dave pledge to go down with the ship as Bill looks for a way to save himself. And as Dave and Jimmy die while Lisa tries making it to New York on her own, Bill and Matthew are left to try and survive together.
