When a has-been Sitcom star needs to revive her TV career the only choice she has is to expose her real life to Big Brother cameras and star in a Reality TV show about herself.
This is the situation 40-something Valerie Cherish finds herself in when she desperately wants to be cast in a big new network comedy called Room and Board.
The sitcom's about four sexy young singles living together in an apartment, Valerie wants to make an impression on the bigwigs doing the hiring and agrees to star in The Comeback - a show about her attempts to do just that.
Forced into having the cameras on them too are her obliging but uncomfortable husband, Mark.
Much happier about the set-up is her camp hairdresser Mickey and watching it all through the eye of the lens is The Comeback's ruthless producer and cameraperson, Jane.
