Episode Notes
This telefilm was based upon the behind the camera actions, however, it is not solely based on reality. Some events were changed for movie purposes. Joyce DeWitt's narration was used to make sure the audience knew the full reality of the actual events.

Some mentions of network stations had to be edited out to avoid legal problems between them.

Jenilee Harrison, Priscilla Barnes and Richard Kline do not have large parts in this production, although they are seen, they have little to no lines. Ann Wedgeworth is not in the movie at all, nor is she mentioned.

Episode Quotes
Joyce: I don't want to be a big star, I want to be a long star...

Suzanne: I may play a dumb blonde on TV, but I assure you, I am not a dumb blonde.
