Storyline

Set on the dark side of Hollywood, B-Movie maven Harry Costas (Burt Young) is forced to protect the screen legacy of his wife Helga (Lainie Kazan) when a low-life upstart producer threatens to ruin her image. Harry's goons (Alex Winter + Brad Dourif) intend to screw-up the production, but instead they skewer the stars, which brings in some bungling cops (Al Ruscio and the late Dr. Timothy Leary). Never-before released cult classic debuts on the internet in series format prior to DVD release. www.mediumrare.me Episodes here- http://mediumrare.blip.tv Written by Anonymous
