Celebrity culture has taken the media world by storm, and thanks to the success of reality TV shows, anyone can now be a star. Based on the episodic TV serial first aired on BBC2 in the U.K., Stella Street offers the perfect satire for the early 21st century, with celebrities who have broken through that next dimension and come unceremoniously back to Earth. Dressed in thrift store parodies of their career peak wardrobes, Keith Richards and Mick Jagger run a corner shop; Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino rub shoulders in a leafy lane in suburbia; and David Bowie has his underwear starched and ironed by an uptight cockney charwoman named Mrs. Huggett. Stella Street is a needle in the celeb-culture balloon, and a welcome antidote to the cosmetic, prepackaged world of the modern icon.
