Description

Did you know that Marilyn Monroe had six toes on her right foot? Or that Clark Gable was listed on his birth certificate as a girl? Trivia buff David Marriot does, and when he gets a job as a question compiler for a new TV Quiz Show, THE LOT, which offers a top prize of [pound]1,000,000, it looks like he's found the perfect career. But his dream job soon turns sour when he finds himself caught up in the back-stabbing and in-fighting behind the scenes at Sparkle Productions. When his boss steals his idea for an astrological game show called Astro Wars, it's the last straw for David. He and his girlfriend Gaby, a contestant researcher for Sparkle, decide to take their revenge by getting a friend on the show, signalling the correct answers to him and disappearing to the Caribbean with a cool [pound]1million. Will their scam be discovered or will they get away with THE LOT?show more
