EDIT
A Death in the Family
AIRED:
Walter Franklin Sr, the star of Beaver Creek dies during hair transplant surgery in Mexico, after Richard suggests he could save money by having it done there as opposed to the States. Pyramid's stock price plummets on the news as the network announces Beaver Creek will not go on. Richard buys 350k worth of stock as he re edits several unaired scenes of Beaver Creek to make it seem as if Walter had filmed a death scene just before he actually died. In the meantime Pyramid quickly orchestrates a show funeral in the Beaver Creek church, utilising the timeslot they had already been alotted. Problems arrise when the head of the Canadian Actors Union finds out they plan on airing the funeral featuring testemonials of the cast. Alan manages to get Beaver Creek renewed for another season when he threatens to hold back the final episode. Richard's quick editing inserts Shiobahn into the show as Walter's sons wife, fufilling a promise he made to her. Pyramid's stock soars and Richard finds himself ninty six thousand dollars richer.moreless
