The year is 1957. The cast and crew of the Lester Guy Show are extremely apprehensive about their upcoming live television broadcast on the Zoblotnick Broadcasting Co. network. Lester Guy despises fellow cast member Betty Hudson for unknowingly becoming more popular than him and schemes to destroy her career. Only two of the seven episodes were written by David Lynch.

I adored this show when it aired and have had the good fortune to have all seven episodes. Ian Buchanan is comic gold as Lester Guy, the second rate star of the Lester Guy show, constantly upstaged by his angelic, kind, beautiful, yet rather simple minded, co-star Betty Hudson. Miguel Ferrer is electric as the ass-kicking, frothing studio executive, Buddy Buddwaller - delivering genius lines like, "McGonnegal, I bear nothing but scorn and calculated retribution in response to shabby treatment from those so far down the food chain." A surreal combination of gypsy magicians, ducks, the hurry-up twins, a sound engineer with Bozman's Simplex, and beatniks make this a hilarious joy ride. Lynch and Frost will astonish and amaze!
