Synopsis:


When a technical mishap destroys their pre-taped, prime time, 10th anniversary special, the three women who host TV’s most popular daytime talk show, Point of View, are forced to replace it with a last minute, live to air broadcast.
But behind the scenes politics, tell-all tabloid stories and rumours about the show’s fate have lit the fuse on an emotional powder-keg.   Now…with no chance for edits or re-takes…10 years of off-camera differences are about to explode…on the air!

Characters: 3 females, 2 males


Brad:
Point of View’s Floor Director, Brad is normally easygoing, a calming influence in the hectic world of studio production. Today will push him to the limit.

Tabitha Smiley: Smiley is the show’s bright and cheerful, up-for-anything girl on location, but there is a tragic side to her no one else has seen.

Raquel Voulet: On camera Raquel is cool and sexy, the embodiment of the smart, well-coifed career woman in control of her own destiny. Off the air, she is flighty to the point of seeming dim-witted.

Sincerity Weeks: Sincerity is a hard-as-nails, self- absorbed, career-obsessed woman; the complete opposite of her on-screen role as Point of View’s sensitive, openly-emotional conscience.

Dr. D.: Doctor Darren Cooper is open, honest and straight-forward;  a genuinely nice man, and a psychologist who, in spite of its limitations, tries to use the medium of television to help guide people to important and useful truths.
