Welcome to the troubled world of Sellevision, America's premier retail broadcasting network. When Max Andrews, the much-loved, handsome (but lonely) and gay host of Slumber Party Sundown accidentally exposes himself in front of 60 million kids and their parents during a "Toys for Tots" segment, Sellevision faces its first big scandal. As Max fails to find a new job in TV, another host, the popular and perky Peggy Jean Smythe, is receiving sinister e-mails from a stalker about her appearance.

There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....
