I believe it was a series or maybe a film set in present or near future.
I remember that one character invented a true 3d holographic TV. At the demonstration he was seemingly murdered by a (samurai?/ninja?) assassin, who was later revealed as a hologram.
Another thing I remember, is that a (I think blind) character gouges the eyes of another character (possibly one who blinded him).

I most definitely saw it in the 1990s.

Wikipedia's list of holograms in fiction returns nothing, tvtropes likewise (including the eyescream subpage)

this has been bugging me for ages...

searching the internet sure can lead you to strange places. and when I saw a picture of a woman with a strange palm tattoo on her back a strange deja vu came over me. so I went digging a bit and found this: WILD PALMS

it is most definitely what I was looking for.
