Season 1

1 :01x01 - Pilot

Sep/22/2000
Grosse Pointe, a hot show on the WB for three years, welcomes a new actor to the set - Courtney, who is straight from Tempe, Arizona in her first Hollywood role as the main characters' cousin from West Virginia. Courtney's arrival upsets Hunter, the main female star of the show who, despite playing "good girl" Becky, is experienced in manipulating people to get what she wants.

Marcy, an actress who plays Becky's best friend Kim, is Hunter's best friend; Marcy tries to be nice to the new girl, but Hunter plays on her insecurity to try to create problems for Courtney. Johnny, who plays Becky's brother Brad, is happy to see Courtney simply because she's hot. Dave, Johnny's best friend and stand-in on the show, is trying to break into the business as an actor. Quentin plays Stone, Becky's boyfriend, but he is significantly older than his teenage role. To cover up the fact that he's losing his hair, he wears a wig, which a sick child who's visiting set discovers and uses to blackmail him. Rob and Hope, the executive producers, just try to keep things running on set so their show goes smoothly.
