Every episode began and ended with the lead character reading in voiceover chapters from a fictional book he had written about his life as a successful sports agent. The point of this was to show that the character did the exact opposite of what he wrote. Robert Wuhl said he got the idea to do this after seeing a book written by Donald J. Trump. Wuhl said he always wondered what the difference was between what was written and what was actually done.
In one episode of the show, we see Ariss Michaels watching on old video of himself winning money on The $10,000 Pyramid (1973) game show. We learn that Michaels used his winnings as seed money to start his agency business. Robert Wuhl was a contestant on the show, and the game show footage that aired was real.
In July 1999, Robert Wuhl appeared on World Championship Wrestling's Monday Nitro in the company's dying days as a guest announcer. He did not appear as himself, but was named "Arliss", and acted in character. The Arliss appearance was panned by fans and wrestling critics, especially because most people didn't know what an "Arli$$" was.
