Looking to raise cash for his label, a newly sober Richie (Bobby Cannavale) flies to LA with Zak (Ray Romano), hoping to sell the company jet to Lou Meshejian (John Ventimiglia), a rival record exec. After attending a beachfront party teeming with many of Lou's music clients, Richie and Zak head to Las Vegas in hopes of somehow convincing Elvis Presley (Shawn Klush) and his manager, Colonel Parker (Gene Jones), that the King should ditch his label and sign with American Century. The detour includes a steamy encounter in which Zak's fantasies come true, at a price.
Written by David Matthews; directed by Allen Coulter.
