Kat Jennings is secretly head-over-heels in love with her co-star in the top-rated comedy show Stars Collide. It’s perfect, because that’s also the part she plays. But when the producers decide to kick it up a notch and have the secret obsession take front stage, Kat discovers that Scott Murphy feels the same way about her–in real life.
Kat lives with her eccentric grandmother, who used to be a Hollywood star in her own right and still seeks the spotlight. For instance, why don’t tourist maps of Hollywood have her house on them? She’s certain fans still care, though (sadly) most don’t recall her name. Grandma is losing her grip on reality and jumps on real life wedding preparations when Scott’s character proposes to Kat’s on TV. This will be the wedding of the decade and remind people about Grandma’s history at the same time. How can Kat slow Grandma down, while wishing it was all true?
Toss in Scott’s staid midwestern family. Season with a unique cast of Hollywood actors and producers, and you have the recipe for hilarity and love.
