About the Producer :
Error N. Spelling :
The famous and well-known big Hollywood producer, Error N. Spelling adds Desperate Plastic to the long list of successful drama series he has produced over the years. He is recognized for creating such shows as "Annaheim 92801," "Mills Road Place," "T.J. is a Hooker," and his big hit-series starring Ricardo Mentalbarn as the owner of an oceanfront-resort coping with global warming, "Fantasy Dry-Land." Spelling may be best known for his creation of "Sinusty," which starred the ever-popular allergy-suffering matriarch, "Kleenexus." Spelling's talents as a producer have led to a string of popular made-for-television movies as well. Most notable of these was the tell-all story of a suffering young boy who was drop-shipped by his parents, entitled, "Boy in the Plastic Bubble-Wrap."
Spelling says the inspiration for Desperate Plastic came from a pool party he hosted at his California home, where uninvited-guest Perv Griffin showed up with the then-undiscovered actor Cliff Diverson, now co-star of Desperate Plastic. Says Spelling, "…that's where I met Desperate Plastic star Cliff Diverson. He was just getting out of the jacuzzi, one of the many pools and jacuzzi's I have on my sprawling Estate. He was wearing a Speedo, and something about him just stood out above the rest. I knew I could make him a star. I noticed right away that his cousin, Torrent, too, had a big chance of being a star. Hunter from Desperate Plastic came with Perv that day, too. Oddly enough, our pianist character, Tripp Spinnet, came with the caterers that day."Error N. Spelling's successes as a producer enabled him to build a sprawling seaside estate, one of the largest in North America. The estate gained notoriety when his wife revealed on a talk-show that the home's 180,000 square feet contained 129 bathrooms, six meat-packing rooms, an indoor landing strip, a broom closet, and yet only three bedrooms. She was quick to point out, however, that her husband Error's private study, screening rooms, offices and saunas, all had sofas that converted into beds for overnight guests.
From the first air-date, Desperate plastic's ratings have shot throughout the roof. Fans from all over the world fell in love with the Caratsworthington family of characters, all have huge followings, but it's character Betty Z'Bottom that seems to appeal most to both sexes. All Desperate Plastic fans were excited when it was revealed that another season of shows is in production. Season two alluded to a major confrontation between Aubergine Worthmorethantrump and the Caratsworthingtons. When asked about any clues to the outcome of Natasha's murder trial, or this season's plot, Error replied only, "Expect the sparks to fly between Aubergine and Alotta and don't be surprised when a few new characters pop up, after all, I'm planning another pool party."
