Queen of the Lot

Synopsis: An electronic ankle bracelet and being under house arrest aren't about to stop up-and-coming actress Maggie Chase (Tanna Frederick) from the two things she craves the most: real fame and true love. With more "Google points" than her Iowa hometown, but far less than Angelina Jolie, Maggie is desperate to claw her way off the B-list of action/adventure pictures and into major movie stardom. With a team of handlers (Ron Vignone, Diane Salinger, David Proval and Zack Norman) to spin her recent drunk driving arrests into tabloid gold and bad-boy movie star boyfriend Dov Lambert (Christopher Rydell) on her arm, Maggie's star is on the rise. Things get complicated when a trip home to meet Dov's legendary family introduces Maggie to the world of Hollywood Royalty (Kathryn Crosby, Mary Crosby, Peter Bogdanovich, Dennis Christopher and Jack Heller) and to her boyfriend's brother Aaron Lambert (Noah Wyle), the black sheep of the family, a failed writer who can actually see who Maggie really is be

(ROARING)

Oh my gosh,

another one's starting.

You wish upon a star

(LAUGHING)

Makes no difference

who you are

(LAUGHING)

'Cause Margie Chizek's

going to be a star

AUNT BEE:
Oh, sweetie.

MAGGIE:
Norma Shearer,

she's queen of the lot.

I'm gonna be queen of the lot

like Norma Shearer.

Queen of the lot,

that's right sweetie.

("YOU OUGHT TO BE

IN PICTURES" PLAYS)

FEMALE NEWSREADER: Fiery redhead

comedienne action star,

Maggie Chase, famous for her

high octane Red Wrecker series,

was arrested Saturday on her

second offense of drunk driving

in two weeks.

While known for

her action flicks,

it looks like the only thing

Maggie will be kicking

is herself while she's under

house arrest.

Lucky for her,

she won't be alone.

Her current beau,

the sizzling Dov Lambert,

is taking a break before

starting his next blockbuster,

- slated to begin production...

- (CAMERA CLICKING)

...just after Christmas.

We'll keep you up to date

on both stars

as the stories roll in.

(NEWS THEME MUSIC)

FEMALE NEWSREADER 2: It may be

one of the biggest risks

facing the U.S. Housing Market.

- (PHONE BEEPING)

- One in four Americans now...

Kaz?

It's Margie.

- Hi.

- (CAMERA CLICKING)

Listen, can I come stay

with you guys for a little bit?

There's photographers here,

they're outside all the time.

Please can I just

stay with you guys?

I... (SIGHS)

Okay, I'm gonna

come tomorrow, okay?

Just a couple of days.

Are you sure Caeser won't care?

Okay.

Love you.

(NEWS THEME MUSIC)

KAZ:
The queen arrives.

- (SHRIEKING)

- Look at you.

(LAUGHING)

- MAGGIE:
Hey.

- CAESAR:
Oh, God.

- MAGGIE:
Oh, my God.

- (LAUGHING)

Oh, my God.

I'm so happy to see you guys.

Welcome.

MAGGIE:
Oh, my God.

I can't believe that I'm...

Oh forget it, you're home.

I want you to know this is

the happiest time in my life.

Look at me.

This is yours, remember that.

Are you proud of yourself?

- Huh?

- CAESAR:
Home sweet home.

You should be the

proudest girl in the world.

You know what

you've accomplished?

It's a new you,

that's what it is.

- Okay?

- MAGGIE:
Thank You.

You don't know how much

this means to me.

KAZ:
And this is your house,

your home.

Go out and take a look

like you used to.

- Go ahead, go ahead.

- MAGGIE:
Okay.

PAROLE OFFICER:
So Maggie,

it's a great place right?

MAGGIE:
Oh yeah,

look at the view.

- Yeah.

- (SIGHS)

Now you know we had to give you

a special chance to do this.

MAGGIE:
Mm-hm.

- Hi!

- Hi.

My name is Crowley.

I'm Ms. Chase's

personal assistant.

- KAZ:
This is Caesar.

- CROWLEY:
Hi.

Get some of this beauty,

infuse it into your spirit.

Take it to another level.

I'm not gonna do what

I did last time, you know.

I can't... I can't mess up again.

It's just too much.

Yeah, no.

And you know, you're too good

to be wearing that stupid thing.

You know, I don't want it

to be beeping,

so I have to come and slug you.

- I'm scared.

- It's alright.

- That's a good thing.

- Is that normal?

It's very normal.

We have her on a herbal

regime for the sobriety.

- No drinking?

- No drinking.

HILDI:
What kind of herbs?

CROWLEY:

Um, it's a green powder drink.

It has a lot of

different vitamins and...

Raw hemp?

You know, I'm not sure.

HILDI:
Hemp is the best

protein powder you can get.

You can handle it. Come on,

you're on screen, you're on...

doing all of that stuff.

But don't get caught up

into the Hollywood hype.

It's not the Hollywood hype

that scares me,

it's like being in the kitchen

and eating dinner

that scares me, you know?

It's the little stuff in life
