It is 1957. Poodle skirts and Elvis are
all the rage and Dwight Eisenhower
has just started his second term as
President of the United States.
TV is replacing radio as the entertainment
medium of choice, and the top-rated show
on the air is The Lizzie Show, a weekly
sitcom starring Lizzie Bell, and co-starring Macie Dixon. The show puts Lizzie and Macie in awkward situations resulting in predictable, but amusing outcomes.
This is Lizzie's second hit sitcom. She and ex-husband, musician Dizzy Gomez, were once the darlings of the airwaves when they starred in I Love Lizzie. But, they split last year after rumors of Dizzy's roving eye were reported in the tabloids. The object of Dizzy's fickle affections remained up for speculation until today's edition of the esteemed trade paper, Veracity, revealed the entire story.
The show's antics are fast-paced and ridiculous, with Lizzie personally handling the commercials for the show's continuing sponsor, Vegitol, the tonic that boosts fatigued corpuscles. Each week, a guest star appears on the show - it's usually someone with a book or a new movie to promote. This week, volatile Mexican heartthrob Ricardo Montelato will join Lizzie and Macie in an episode entitled "All's Fair in Love and Yahtzee."
Tempers are ready to erupt as the cast prepares for the live broadcast at network flagship station, WHAK. Who would guess that murder is in the script? Before the show comes to an unceremonious end, someone will die, the victim of the behind-the-scenes intrigues that some say are just a normal part of show biz.
Could someone die laughing?
