This is PATTERNS:
This drama concerns the struggles of an idealistic young executive who tries to resist the corrosive pressures of the world of the giant corporations.
Fred Staples has been brought into Ramsey and Co. by its efficient, tough and predatory president, who is grooming him for one of the top spots, but Fred rebels when he learns Ramsey has — all along — been preparing him to replace Andy Sloane. Sloane is old and ill, and Ramsey has been carrying out a cold-blooded campaign to force his resignation.
