Maddie Mulhern is suddenly in charge. Her mum and dad - former 80s pop duo Pineapple Mist - have left for the summer on a nostalgia concert tour, so Maddie must manage their struggling Karaoke bar, 'Sing it Back'. It suits Maddie down to the ground, in fact. After years of trudging through temping jobs, she needs a change. When Maddie spots an advert for a new prime-time show looking for a bar to be the setting of a fly-on-the-wall documentary, she has the genius idea that this is just the sort of exposure that the place needs. Together with the bar's old-timers (faded drag queen Ruby du Jour, suave barman Alex and wannabe actress/reluctant waitress Jasmine) she'll turn the karaoke bar around into a huge global brand and make pots of her money for her family. Simple. Right? Money-grubbing TV exec Evan and the seemingly too-smooth-to-be-true producer Nick might just have other ideas . . . As the TV series builds to a live final episode, will Maddie see the truth in a Careless Whisper? Will Nick be able to keep his Poker Face? One thing's for sure, before the credits roll there'll be Blood on the Dancefloor . . .
Jagger isn't your typical sex columnist. He is an aristocratic beach thug who rules by his scrupulous idea of how life should be. He equates dating with going to battle while on his hunt for the real thing in a city that is plagued of any honest human connection. He's strikingly attractive, but also a menace, with an uncompromising disapproval for weakness and bad etiquette. His engaging friends compliment his aggressive nature by tempering his inflexible fight on mankind to gain insight into their intolerable behavior. He finds exhaustion with going on yet another dating excursion when he knows the guy for him is the one he can't say more than two words to. If there is any light to all his darkness, it's the pleasing love story, the central theme that runs throughout his disappointments in matters of the heart. He experiences the kind of crush and love one has as a teenager over Garth, the dreamboat lifeguard from Australia, with the boyish distinction and the killer smile, who he keeps running into in passing. He feels an immediate unexplainable silent connection with him and longs to get close. This is the screenplay adaptation from the book "Jagger's Revolution".
