About the film:

UHF is the film debut of comedy rock satirist Weird Al Yankovic, who also co-wrote the screenplay. George Newman (Yankovic) and his friend Bob (David Bowe from The Cable Guy) are fired from their jobs at Burger World. So George decides to take over Channel 62, a failing local TV station that his uncle Harvey (Stanley Brock) won in a poker game. George turns it around into an overnight success after letting the janitor, Stanley Spadowski (Michael Richards from Seinfeld), host a kid’s show. George then fills the broadcast day with bizarre programming, bringing the ratings up and saving the station. Soon, rival station CEO R.J. Fletcher (Kevin McCarthy) of Channel 8 threatens to sabotage the successful station, and George must come up with a way to save it. Loosely constructed around this storyline, UHF is mostly a series of TV, movie and pop culture parodies and non-stop sight gags, and has gone on to become a widely loved cult classic. UHF also stars Victoria Jackson, Emo Philips, and Fran Drescher.

UHF was shot in Tulsa in the summer of 1988.  For UHF/Tulsa connections, memories, and info on many of the locations used, click here
