Premise

Kate Westborune (Shirley MacLaine), Addie Holden (Joan Collins) and Piper Grayson (Debbie Reynolds) are three legendary Hollywood stars who in their heyday were known to audiences for their beauty, charm, and musical talent - and, within the music industry, for their short-tempers and industrial - strength egos. The three stars only worked together once, on a musical made in the early 60s' called Boy Crazy, but when the film becomes a cult sensation in a late 90s're-release, Gavin (Nestor Carbonell), a network television executive desperate for a hit, gets the idea of staging a reunion special starring the three ideas. However, there's a hitch - the three women can barely stand each other, and while they share the same agent, Beryl Mason (Elizabeth Taylor), Beryl and Piper haven't gotten along since Piper's husband left her to marry Beryl. But Gavin is determined to make the project work, and hires Kate's son Wesley (Jonathan Silverman) to work with Beryl to pull things together. Against all odds, the three stars agree to do the special, but while there's no small amount of cat-fighting behind the scenes, in front of the camera the ladies discover time has not been kind to all of them.

Originally, Tony Curtis was offered to play the male lead, and Lauren Bacall declined the role of Piper Grayson.
