Follows the life of a former hit TV series actor by the name of Dean Sanderson (Rob Lowe).

Just a fantastic show
16 December 2015 | by jcott-854-476496See all my reviews

Didn't think this show would be good at all. Glad I gave it a chance. Lowe and Savage are amazing together. Could see these 2 doing future movies or shows together. Entire cast is great.

The writing is pure genius.

It might be a little too complex for the average person though. The writing is that brilliant.

I highly recommend this show.

Watch it more than once to truly appreciate its genius.

Problem this show will run into is how do you keep it fresh and complex at the same time.

Good luck
