The Comeback

The Comeback

Friends star Lisa Kudrow makes a monumental comeback in this hilarious assault on the American television industry. The show, following the attempted return to the limelight of faded former sitcom star Valerie Cherish, is the creation of Kudrow herself along with one of Hollywood’s top comedic talents, Sex and the City executive producer Michael Patrick King.

In her effort to revive her flagging career, forty-something Valerie agrees to be the focus of a reality television show called The Comeback which follows her every move as she tries to land a role in a hot new sitcom about “four sexy singles living in a condo” called Room and Bored. This show-within-a-show-within-a-show is a caustic and timely look at the fame game and the lengths a single-minded star will go to retain her place in the public’s gaze. There are hilarious scenarios, surreal plot twists and humiliations aplenty!

In the first episode, the resilient Valerie battles to be cast in Room and Bored, which is set to co-star four scantily-clad, beautiful young things: Juno (Malin Akerman), Shayne (Kimberly Kevon Williams), Jesse (Jason Olive) and Chris (Kellan Lutz). Thrilled when she’s finally offered a part, Valerie soon discovers it’s not what she expected when she finds herself recast as the somewhat pathetic Aunt Sassy, a pastel-tracksuit wearing frump who lives upstairs. Added to this is the fact that the prying reality show cameras are there to capture every moment of her rather tragic fall from grace.
