TV show description:
A parody of iconic Golden Age musicals, the Schmigadoon! TV show was created by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.
The story follows a pair of New York City doctors, Melissa Gimble (Strong) and Josh Skinner (Key). Their romance begins after a vending machine malfunctions and gives them all of its candy contents. But, over time, their relationship grows stale and they go on a retreat to rediscover their spark. While on a backpacking trip in the woods, they become lost and happen upon a stone bridge.
They cross the bridge and find themselves in a seemingly idyllic town called Schmigadoon, where everyone acts and sings like they’re in a classic 1940s musical. The next morning, when they try to depart the magical town, a leprechaun (Short) tells Melissa and Josh that they cannot leave until they find true love.
This episode has not aired yet.
