The Real Me

From Showtime: Chris is initially thrilled when cousin Ordell shows up in town with his new band. His excitement turns to dismay when he discovers that Ordell's new band, Blue Hotel, is a Chris Isaak tribute band. If it was anyone else, Chris would raise hell, but he still feels guilty about his role in a lawn-dart accident that cost Ordell a toe years before. Ordell borrows Chris's clothes and dates his old girlfriends. When Ordell records a cheesy commercial for a fried chicken outlet using one of Chris's songs, Chris finally has to speak up. Meanwhile, Chris's band members are both intrigued and appalled by their alter-egos in the tribute band. Anson bonds instantly with Deke, his wild-man counterpart in Blue Hotel. And Roly has his eye on the woman who plays Hershel in the band; much to Hershel's consternation. Yola tries to sort everything out, all while struggling with her love-hate relationship with Cody, the young and cocky new manager at the agency.
