“Best Night of the Week” is a Satire with a zany kind of vibe, a very contemporary style with uplifting and positive messages. The story concerns Liam Excalibur – a reality TV Producer/Host whose career is on the downslide who – through contact with a 9 year old fan – gets an idea for a possible career-saving show about her foster dad (who is a Canadian Supremacist Leader) and her foster brother (who is a wanna be pop star). Mayhem ensues when an Israeli Rabbi appears on the scene with shocking news and everyone goes on a journey in which they reassess what they truly believe in and want out of life.
