A British drama graduate - Jenni Russell - goes to Los Angeles to try her luck in TV and movies over there, after a year of auditioning for roles in the UK that she ended up losing out on. Whilst there, she tries for a leading part in the pilot for a new teen drama series: when she wins the role, she goes out celebrating, but wakes the next morning to find herself married to an American actor - Mike Walcott - who is her co-star on the series. When the series is picked up by one of the TV networks, Mike and Jenni learn that the characters they are playing cannot stand one another, and the head of the programme's publicity encourages them to hype up their mutual on-screen hatred to improve their ratings, unaware that they are husband-and-wife. The ruse works, and the show propels the married couple to stardom. Can they keep the illusion they are like the parts they play without the situation blighting their marriage?
