Pray TV is a comedy movie from 1980 that stars Dabney Coleman as Sidney Lotterby, the owner of a struggling UHF Christian TV station in Southern California that is in need of a miracle to stay on-air. The movie is directed by Rick Friedberg and written by Richard Chapman and Ann Elder. The plot of the movie revolves around a group of characters who come together to save the TV station from bankruptcy. The main character Sidney Lotterby is a shifty TV executive who is known to be ruthless in his pursuit of profit. He is constantly on the lookout for new ideas that can help his station gain ratings and revenue.

One day, Lotterby comes across an idea that he thinks could save his station. He discovers a group of nuns who have developed a machine that they claim can receive messages from God. Lotterby sees this as an opportunity to create a new type of TV show that can attract a large mainstream audience.

With the help of his assistant, the enthusiastic and eager Paul Cooper (played by Paul Cooper), Sidney Lotterby convinces the nuns to let him use their machine to create a TV show called "Ask God". The show becomes an instant hit with viewers from all walks of life, including a group of Satanic worshippers who become regular callers.

However, as the show becomes more and more popular, Sidney and Paul begin to realize that they may have bitten off more than they can chew. The nuns start to have doubts about the reliability of their machine, and the Satanic callers become increasingly disturbing.

The situation is further complicated by the appearance of Rosemary Alexander, who plays the role of a determined investigative journalist who is eager to expose the TV station as a fraud. As she investigates the strange goings-on behind the scenes of the "Ask God" show, she uncovers a dangerous conspiracy that threatens to destroy the TV station and the lives of everyone involved.

Throughout the movie, Pray TV, viewers follow the characters as they navigate their way through a number of hilarious and often chaotic situations.
