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.
