'Anchorman' exhibit at Washington D.C. Newseum: It's kind of a big deal

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Newseum in Washington is hoping to stay classy with an exhibit built around the 2004 hit comedy "Anchorman".

The exhibit features a wide variety of costumes and props from the movie, which focused on the bumbling hijinks of a fictional local news team in San Diego in the 1970's.

Included in the display is a re-creation of the KVWN-TV anchor desk, which visitors can use for photo ops.

It also explores some of the reality behind the humor of the film, including the stories of female reporters who got their start in the 70's.

The much-anticipated sequel, "Anchorman 2: the legend continues", opens in theaters on December 20th.
