Storyline

In Hollywood you're only as good as your last flick, and Dragonfire Films exec Peter Dragon has hit bottom with his $150 million bomb "Slow Torture." His only hope to get back to the way things were is the shoot-'em-up film "Beverly Hills Gun Club," and the only person that will help him is ex-child star turned hooker Wendy Ward.

Alternate Versions

In Latin America, the Sony Channel (Sony Entertainment Television) aired all the episodes that were filmed. In the U.S., Peter Dragon dies in the final episode, but (at least in Latin America) he continued production after that episode: he got back with Wendy, and learned that Adam Rafkin (the script writer) had previously sold the movie he was filming under a different title. Then Peter had to buy the script back, giving Wendy as a trade. In the end, Wendy left Peter and Hollywood after making him promise he would return all the money she had invested. In the final scene, Uncle Lonnie asks Peter if he wants to go home, and Peter asks Lonnie to take him to the studio, because "that's my home". See more »

Oh my gosh, it's good writing.
3 July 2000 | by tbabe29See all my reviews

Where have I been? Here I am sitting on my couch on a Sunday evening, looking for something halfway bearable to watch and I see Jay Mohr doing television. Right away, I was intrigued. And right away, I stayed. Why do people like this show? It's called GOOD WRITING. And FINALLY, these excellent actors have something to work with. Too bad this series got cancelled, it must have been a little too honest for some people.

For mature audiences only and a hilarious mockery of Hollywood.
