Writing a weekly TV show for a famous comic in the 1950’s is anything but easy. Inspired by Neil Simon’s experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar’s Your Show Of Shows, this comedy will have you rolling in the aisles as the harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other while competing for the attention of star madman Max Prince.
