The actors, it turns out, are all actoids ñ robots programmed to play the parts of the showís characters.

Adam strikes up a conversation with the actoid Jacie Triplethree (serial number JCF31333) and finds, to his surprise that not only can she carry on an unprogrammed conversation, she also is capable of creative imagination. Adam envisions a new television series with Jacie as the star, but the studio rejects his idea and decides to melt down Jacie. Adam and Jacie run away, but cannot elude capture. In the course of events, Adam finds himself falling in love with the lovely Jacie. Will Adam get the green light on his series? Will Jacie avoid meltdown?
