Guest in a Snake
Late-night talk shows often have celebrities stop by to promote their latest project, but sometimes some of the most absurd stuff happens behind the scenes of the shows. "Nightcap" offers an exaggerated look at the off-camera antics through the staff of late-night program "Nightcap With Jimmy." It is the responsibility of head talent booker Staci to take charge of not only the celebrity guests but also the show's dysfunctional staff to make sure the performance goes off without a hitch. The roster of stars who appear as themselves on the sitcom include Gwyneth Paltrow, Kelly Ripa, Whoopi Goldberg, Michael J. Fox and Mariska Hargitay. According to creator and star Ali Wentworth, who is likely biased in her assessment, "the series is hilarious and Ali Wentworth is phenomenal."
