This satire of TV soaps takes place on Sound Stage Three of Sunset, a long-running show, and focuses on the off-camera lives of the characters. It genially skewers the cliched situations, characters and dialogue of a typical TV daytime drama. There are two newcomers to the cast - Tamara, who is returning after a two-year absence to play Bridget, and Taylor, a serious actor and film star who is making his TV daytime drama debut as John. Tamara and Taylor are brother and sister in real life. Also on hand are Judith, Taylor's embittered ex-girl friend who plays Barbara, and Bruce, an airhead whose major concern - apart from remembering his lines - is making sure his hair looks good. In one scene he jots his lines down on his hands - only to become hopelessly befuddled when his hands begin to sweat under the lights! Also in the cast is one actor who plays several different roles - from the director to the makeup man, to the wardrobe lady, and on and on in a demanding series of comic cameos.
