Spring Murder Mystery
Written and Directed by Mark Allen
Behind the scenes of a cable television network, once at the top of the heap but now struggling due to flagging viewership and poor ratings. Shenanigans takes place on the dual set of the network’s flagship shows -- the highly rated trivia game show, Sit and Spin, and the popular cooking show, Cooking With Gas.
Chip Maxwell is the host and executive producer of Sit and Spin. He is also the executive producer of Cooking With Gas, which has as its host Chip’s longtime girlfriend, celebrity chef Gilda Gladwynne.
Chip is under a great deal of pressure. Cable network executives are pressuring Chip to retool the game show to make it edgier and more appealing to a contemporary audience. They are pitching a new game show called Flushing Your Future that involves a giant toilet that contestants flush.
In the meantime, everything is going wrong on the set of Cooking With Gas. Production assistants have supplied the wrong ingredients, things keep catching on fire, and everyone is getting drunk on Cooking Sherry.
Chip and Gilda are fighting. Chip and his co-host are fighting, the contestants are fighting, and there’s a dead body in the audience.
