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 . . .
