The Knables used to be the All-American suburban family unit, but lately, things have been changing – and not for the better. The Knables sign up for a 24-hour trial on a new television network and are drawn in – literally – to become part of its diabolical programming.
The entire family must use every ounce of ingenuity they can muster to outwit the evil programmer and return to watching the tube – instead of living it.
