SynopsisWhen Danton Stanton ‘accidentally’ kills oil tycoon Mr. Paramount, he alters his will and inherits Mr Paramount’s long neglected TV station, also ‘by accident.’ Danton decides to make the best of things and together with his best friend Walton Harley, team up with a selection of misfits who, between them, have had SOME previous television experience. These include the elderly Beverly Kraft, recently fired from her job at the community college, and Fred Feltbetter, an ageing has-been who fell far from grace in his previous job at the local rival TV network, and who now moonlights as Liza Justice, a cabaret singer. Between the four of them, they come up with a plan to rescue the failed TV station and best the rival network, one televised catastrophe at a time.
