Barely four years after winning an Oscar, Charlie has sunken into the ranks of Hollywood bottom-feeders. But one day at his weekly Debtors Anonymous meeting, he meets a mysterious ex-CIA agent who proposes to resuscitate Charlie's foundering career in the beyond-surreal world of reality TV. Charlie puts his tap shoes on to sell a show about a ruthless Uzbek warlord and his family-"The Osbournes meets The Sopranos"-to a rogue division of ABC known as ABCD, whose mandate is to develop, under top secret cover, extreme reality TV shows to bolster the network's ratings. When Warlord becomes a breakout hit, it not only sends one of America's largest entertainment conglomerates into full damage-control mode, but shifts the balance of power in Central Asia, proving that in show business, it's not over till the mouse sings.

"Peter Lefcourt does for Hollywood what Christopher Buckley does for Washington: stick pins in all the right places."-New York Times
