Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Originally filmed under the title Slow Burn, this made-for-TV thriller stars Jennifer Beals as Sloan McBride, a Cher-like rock diva. After 17 years on the top, the fortysomething Sloan is faced with the realization that her popularity is being chipped away by the Britneys of the world. Enter the diva's "biggest fan," Jenny (Keri Lynn Pratt), whose boundless idolatry and flattery earns her a job as Sloan's chief assistant. What at first seems to be a rehash of All About Eve takes on sinister shadings when Jenny's hidden agenda is revealed. It seems that Sloan had been instrumental in ruining the career of Jenny's mother...or at least that is what the revenge-seeking girl believes in her heart of hearts. They Shoot Divas, Don't They? joined the VH1 movie rotation on October 5, 2002.
