Jessica talks about Maggie, her most promising high school English pupil, who made it as an author, albeit not in literature but as TV script writer. However, her hit series 'Beat Cop' may be canceled after a mystery man shoots a network VP during a screening, after the widow whose money controls the studio intervened against axing it. Lead actor Bert Rodgers' fingerprints are found on the gun, so LAPD Lieutenant Vincent Palermo, after who his character was modeled, arrests him. The new executive will cancel it without the star, so Maggie must find the killer or another job.
