Espionage, the first action show to feature a lead gay character, is hotter than ever as it enters its fifth season. And then tragedy strikes: Lance Hardcastle, the popular star, meets an untimely death! Faced with finding a replacement, the network selects a complete unknown, Kerry Mitchell, chiefly because Kerry is openly gay. Kerry is suddenly whisked into a world of press junkets and photo shoots, and is even followed around by a documentary film crew. But Kerry is hiding a big secret that might very well change everything. In the tradition of Best in Show and Waiting For Guffman, Idol (co-directed by Naked Fame's Chris Long) is a comedy holding up a funhouse mirror to our obsession with fame and celebrity.
