Producer Jackson Sidemark has a hit TV series. Unfortunately, his star Barry Conrad tells him he won't be doing another season, after Sidemark is already on the hook for numerous contractual obligations. Conrad stabs others in the back too, like the former star who gave him his start, and the writer of Sidemark's show. There's little surprise when a murder occurs, but nothing goes as expected after that. There's perjury, dismissal of charges, and accusations from Burger of Perry's misconduct. After a second murder, Perry has a new client, and must solve both cases to get at the truth. He's helped and hindered by a cast of both familiar TV faces and members of the "Perry Mason" crew in bit parts, plus Perry's creator Erle Stanley Gardner. Written by
