From the novel Eleanor and Abel by Annette Sanford. Retired schoolteacher Eleanor Bannister lives a quiet life alone in the tiny town of Groverdell, Texas. She is set in her routines and secure in her position as the town’s most respected woman—until a hole in her roof draws the attention of Abel Brown, a smooth-talking drifter intent on renovating Eleanor’s house, and possibly her life. Can the unexpected sparks of late life romance be trusted, or is there truth in the gossip that Abel isn’t all that he seems to be? Either way, the whole town is talking.

Show  Synopsis

The Nickie and Ricky Rivers Show is broadcasting their talk show on the road and it’s a bumpy ride. This show features D-list guests including Vegas Lounge singing team of Shecky Scagnetti and Edie Buffet, new age guru: Celeste Ethereal, home economist: Phoebe St Self, and gossip columnist: Polly Pettegolo. Everyone is on the talk show to plug their own talk shows. What starts out to be a yawn fest heats up with a few ego and personality clashes. Sure, it sounds like every other talk show but, this particular show kills! Literally. One of the featured guests is murdered. Who would want someone dead while “live” on the air? Or is the question, who wouldn’t? Can this mystery help the ratings? Must the Show go on? Might as well, there’s nothing else on.

 

Casting 4 woman & 1 male 

Edie Buffet - Wife of Shecky.  A little rough around the edges and road-weary.  Not too bright.

Phoebe St Self - Anti Feminist and is not afraid to force her views upon anyone.  Is convinced Martha Stewart is based on her.

Celeste Ethereal - New Age Spiritualist and Guru.  Her mind tends to wander among the clouds. 

Cany Karka - Attractive bookish girl with brains.  Full-time student picking up a few dollars to Phoebe's assistant. 

Buzz Beckett - Appears to be a very by the book cop.  Speaks just like every cop in every TV interview.  

 

 

 

Show runs April 19, 20 & 21
