When a groovy actress slides headlong into unforeseen debt and an unrelenting debt collector, she determines to rescue herself armed only with spunk, a can-do gal pal, and a starry-eyed scheme to spin the mundane into the must watch!
Set in the 1970s,If I Had a Dime tells the story of Miranda Davis, a middle-aged actress with the spunk of Mary Richards, the career of Joey Tribiani, and the financial woes of George Bailey. After 30 years of playing out her tantalizingly near-glamorous life in the entertainment mecca known as Generic City, Miranda receives bad news of the tax kind and finds herself entangled with the Underpaid/Overdue Agency—the UO, for short—and its most exacting agent, Earnest Mee. Assigned the task of discovering just how extensive the tax debt is, Mee discovers instead that his latest mark is none other than the second-string actress for whom he carries a first-rate torch. As duty collides with adoration, Mee realizes that a protracted audit may provide the means he needs to unravel the accounting conundrum while simultaneously wooing the adored Miranda.
In the meantime, Miranda seeks solutions, turning first, as always, to her fearless best gal-pal Beatrice Hardy in whose tool-laden garage inspiration strikes. Enlisting Bea’s help, Miranda sets out to do something that’s never been done before: document her life, and televise it for everyone to see. True, it is questionable whether audiences will want to watch a real life unfold, but plucky Miranda is certain: celluloid tales of an actor’s life—even her actor’s life, spent in the shadow of actors far more famous than she—are her best hope for doing the ultimate deed…saving herself!
