So True.

You can’t judge a book by its cover — especially when it’s only covered by a miniskirt and a baby-tee.


pam.jpgThat’s riiiight: It’s a comedy, In a Bookstore, Starring Pammy! (Get it: STACKED?!) (Is that a little vomit in your mouth? I’ve some in mine, too.)

From the show’s official website):

You can’t judge a book by its cover — especially when it’s only covered by a miniskirt and a baby-tee.1

A workplace ensemble comedy, STACKED revolves around beautiful SKYLER DAYTON (Pamela Anderson, “Baywatch,” “V.I.P”) who is tired of her non-stop partying lifestyle and bad choices in boyfriends. Wanting a major life change, she wanders into “The Stacks,” a small family-run bookstore2 owned by GAVIN DEWITT (Tom Everett Scott, “That Thing You Do!,” “ER”) and his brother, STUART (Brian Scolaro, “Three Sisters”).

Divorced and unlucky in love himself, Gavin’s inclined to regard Skyler as an embodiment of the vacuous, image-obsessed culture he has come to abhor. Stuart, however, is dazzled by Skyler’s beauty and, much to Gavin’s horror, offers her a job at their store, which she happily accepts as the first step in her quest for a steadier lifestyle.3

Rounding out the characters is the store’s one steady customer, HAROLD MARCH (Christopher Lloyd, “Taxi,” “Back to the Future”) a preeminent but retired rocket scientist.4

STACKED is a 20th Century Fox Television production.

1 Actually, funny thing: Pamela Anderson, despite her rectangular waist-hip ratio, isn’t a book, and miniskirts have never counted as book covers. But, if she were a book, you’d probably be able to know, just by that outfit, that you’d walked into a used book store.
2 I know it’s not real, just a sitcom, etc., but I can’t help thinking about the (frail, and wholesome) parents who decided to name their little family store “The Stacks” — and how sad they’d be to know what double-entendres their name was being abused with.
3 Right, because the salary of a bookstore clerk is way above the must-resort-to-porn-poverty-line.
4 Christopher Lloyd as a Rocket Scientist? That’s like … casting Pam Anderson as … Never Mind. No “As” recquired.
