[books/tv] Stacked, cont'd

More news on a show that Fox hopes will bring illiterate people into bookstores across the country.

"A workplace ensemble comedy, Stacked revolves around beautiful Skyler Dayton (Pamela Anderson, Baywatch, V.I.P) who is tired of her non-stop partying lifestyle and bad choices in boyfriends. Wanting a major life change, she wanders into 'The Stacks,' a small family-run bookstore owned by Gavin DeWitt (Elon Gold, In-Laws) and his brother, Stuart (Brian Scolaro, Three Sisters).

Divorced and unlucky in love himself, Gavin's inclined to regard Skyler as an embodiment of the vacuous, image-obsessed culture he has come to abhor. Stuart, however, is dazzled by Skyler's beauty and, much to Gavin's horror, offers her a job at their store, which she happily accepts as the first step in her quest for a steadier lifestyle. Unhappy that she's going to be minding the till next to such an intimidating bombshell is the store's sole other employee, Katrina (Marissa Jaret Winokur, 'Hairspray'), who doles out doses of realism and cynicism. Rounding out the characters is the store's one steady customer, Harold March (Christopher Lloyd, Taxi, Back to the Future), a preeminent but retired rocket scientist."

I'm inclined to think that this show will not have as many literary references as Gilmore Girls. Or, if they do, it'll be mentions of Dr. Seuss and The Da Vinci Code. Still, I'm going to have to find someone with cable and ask them if I can come over once a week to watch this...

Also, the show's cast as a Friendster page.
