Tyler's Third Act
by Mick Garris
About the Book:
How much would you pay to experience something truly disturbing?
Tyler Sparrow isn't too happy about recent changes in the movie and television industry. The continuing emphasis on unscripted reality entertainment is putting writers like himself out of work. As his career enters its "Third Act" (industry jargon for the final section of a film script), Tyler decides to take matters into his own hands: he'll create and star in his own web-based program, something sensational and disturbing that will grab the short-attention-span of today's fickle audiences.
Trouble is, if the program is successful, then audiences will be hungry for more... and it will become increasingly difficult to satisfy their appetites.
What happens when you mix the knowledge of a media-industry insider with a horror writer's eye for the bizarre? You get Tyler's Third Act, Mick Garris' satire on the twisted world of reality programs.
