Is Annie Parker really obsessed with country music stars and ignoring her husband, or are they just making it all up to get on TV? How will talk show host Reeva Squires deal with the way the Parkers humiliated her? What about country star Torry Don's problem with women? In this fast paced satire, is anyone telling the truth?

"We produced TNTV and TNTV2 this spring. Mr. Rabushka was FANTASTIC to work with and gave us leeway to be creative in our production. He even surprised our cast by attending the final performance. Both scripts are great individually and even better joined together. I highly recommend all directors look at these scripts, plus any other of Mr. Rabushka's works. You will not be disappointed."
By Eryn Hunt - Director - Mansfield High School
"Tennessee TV takes situations from real life and shows them on stage. It’s about people who use the media to get away from their own troubles. We get to embrace a whole different culture of America."
By Jamie Jung, Wisconsin Rapids Tribune
I wrote Tennessee TV originally for a video production, and since we never got to finish filming it, we put it on stage instead. I think this play gives out a lot of options... it has the option for live music even original music if you have a songwriter at school, and the script itself has a lot of fun with people who seek celebrity through talk shows..(both the hosts and the guests), to the point that by the end, they can''t remember what''s reality and what''s not. Besides, that, there''s about seven scenes in a half hour, so along with a fun scripts, it''s a great teaching tool for tech, lighting, sound, and stage hands, who will be a lot busier than in your usual one-act. You can combine this with Tennessee TV Take Two for a longer production. Enjoy!
