  • 6. And the Winner is….

    Awards night. Who cares? Everybody. Pyramid President Alan Roy is to receive a lifetime achievement award. But tuxedos and sequins do not guarantee a good time. The dismissed Raymond returns to the company with a series idea, a good series idea. Richard oversteps his bounds. Tides are turning at Pyramid Productions.
