Scrooged is Dickens’ old tale set in New York city in 1988. Frank Cross runs a US TV station which is planning a live adaptation of Dickens’ Christmas Carol. Having had a difficult childhood, resulting in his being a cynical grouch in adulthood, Cross is presented as a modern-day “Scrooge” figure. And, you guessed it, television executive Frank Cross gets the same sort of Christmas night visits from the same sort of spirits who sent a message to the original Ebeneezer Scrooge.
