Set in the world of yellow journalism in New York in the 1890s, Park Row follows the newspaper circulation wars between the two most powerful media titans of the day — Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst. The show moves from Gilded Age palaces and yachts to filthy streets and dark alleys. It follows Pulitzer, Hearst, their families, mistresses, friends, enemies and reporters who, with the modern media weapons of sensationalism, spectacle and self-promotion, chronicled the sex, violence, brutality and corruption of the day, selling a lot of newspapers and making a lot of money.
