The purpose of play is to create a short-run television series (5 or 9 episodes) driven by the melodramatic Issues of the show's stars. Players in PTA are both the Actors of their protagonists as well as Authors of the TV series. The GM (called the Producer in this game) has two jobs: make sure scenes move toward Conflict and work the overall story arc for the Season into play.
