Stewart Hoag, former literary wunderkind turned celebrity
ghost, finds himself beset from all sides, professional and
personal, and his current assignment - to write the
"autobiography" of TV comic Lyle Hudnut - may be more than
even the intrepidly dapper Hoagy can bear. The Uncle Chubby
Show, Lyle's phenomenally successful sitcom, has been under
siege ever since the star was embarrassingly arrested in a
porno movie theater.
Now Hoagy's doing time on the set with what appear to be a
bunch of manic, subversive lunatics - writers, producers,
actors, even the wardrobe woman. Things start to go wrong
gradually, but the mischief soon escalates to murder.
Someone even tries to run Hoagy over one night, right in
front of the Ralph Lauren boutique. And then his inseparable
sidekick, the fish-eating basset hound Lulu, is attacked by
the show's rottweiler dog-star.
