Overview
The world of Wall Street drove Charles Lumley III up the wall. His new job at the New York City Morgue is much quieter – until Billy "Blaze" Blazejowski arrives one night. An idea man with more solutions than there are problems, Billy has a cool idea on how to liven things up.

Directed by Ron Howard (Splash, Cocoon), Night Shift is a breakneck comedy rife with ideas, mostly hysterical. Henry Winkler (Happy Days) is low-key Lumley in a delightfully offbeat performance. Cheers alumna Shelley Long also scores in a role light years from prim barmaid Diane. But the casting triumph is Michael Keaton in his movie debut as Billy Blaze, launching a rich career ranging from Beetlejuice to Batman™ to Jackie Brown. Is this a great country or what?!?
