Scheherazade has a lot on her plate. She oversees the production of hundreds of reality TV shows, and if she doesn't come up with a new one each and every night, the Sultan will have her head. Sure, everyone wants to keep up with Cinderella's step-family, Hansel and Gretel are in hot water on the cooking show, and the "bachelor" is all Beast, but what will Scheherazade have for the self-centered ruler tonight? With the Sultan on his way to the studio, will there be a job opening by morning? Or does the brave and clever producer have him right where she wants him in this fast-paced mash-up of fairy tales and reality television? Stay tuned...
