Talk to Me is a 1996 made-for-TV drama film directed by Graeme Campbell and starring Yasmine Bleeth and Ricky Paull Goldin. The film aired on the ABC network.


Diane Shepherd is an idealistic talk-show producer, who is conscience-stricken, when she clashes with her ratings-obsessed and ruthless talk-show executive boss. Diane is forced to produce a tantalizing program about a prostitute which potentially harms the prostitute, who is trying to turn her life around.

Kelly Reilly is a teenaged mother whose life is exposed on The Howard Grant Show. Kelly desperately wants to lead a normal life, but society is dragging her back down.
