Death in Prime Time

Death in Prime Time

It was seven years ago today (October 5, 2011) that we performed our Death in Prime Time script for the first time.  The client was Northwood Middle School in Woodstock. The script is written by Mary Heitert and Valerie Gugala, and directed by Kristi Alsip.

THE STORY

Death in Prime Time

TV director CHRIS HALL is doing a re-make of a famous sit-com from the 80’s, called The Foster Formula. The original show was canceled after the death of its star, beloved actress – Claire Crawford. Today, three actresses are up for the part formerly held by Claire. RITA CRAWFORD, daughter of famous actress Claire Crawford, assumes she will automatically get the part because of her mother’s legacy. MORGAN AMBROSE just finished a very successful run of another sit-com. She played the quirky best friend to the show’s lead. MARY LOU ROGERS is a sweet young thing who just arrived in Hollywood from Beatrice, NE with stars in her eyes.
