Abstract:

Songwriter Adam Bede is in trouble. First, his star client, teen pop sensation Christie Squires dumps him, deciding she is tired of singing the bubble-gum hits Adam penned for her, and wants to be taken seriously. Then underground music sensation Sam Sparks--brilliant, gorgeous, overeducated Sam Sparks--sets his sights on Adam's boyfriend, Lyle, a political analyst who appears regularly on Meet the Press-type Sunday talk shows. When Sam and Christie throw their hats in the ring on a new reality TV contest to find the best singer-songwriter in America, Adam sees a chance to save both his career and his relationship. He'll enter the damn thing himself! Maybe he should have thought a little harder about that ...
