Premise

Stacked was hailed as the opposite of Cheers, instead of a smart person in a "dumb" place, it is based on the concept of dumb person in a "smart" place. A workplace ensemble comedy, Stacked revolves around Skyler Dayton (Pamela Anderson) who is tired of her non-stop partying lifestyle and bad choices in boyfriends. Wanting a major life change, she wanders into "Stacked Books", a small, family-run bookstore owned by Gavin Miller (Elon Gold) and his brother, Stuart (Brian Scolaro).
Divorced and unlucky in love himself, Gavin's inclined to regard Skyler as an embodiment of the vacuous, image-obsessed culture he has come to abhor. Stuart, however, is dazzled by Skyler's beauty and, much to Gavin's horror, offers her a job at their store, which she happily accepts as the first step in her quest for a steadier lifestyle. Unhappy that she's going to be minding the till next to such an intimidating bombshell is the store's sole other employee, Katrina (Marissa Jaret Winokur), who doles out doses of realism and cynicism. Rounding out the characters is the store's one steady customer, Harold March (Christopher Lloyd), a preeminent, but retired, rocket scientist.
The series has been sold to other television channels around the world including Paramount Comedy 1 in the United Kingdom, Channel 7 in Australia, True Series in Thailand, Italia 1 in Italy,TV3 in Norway as well as Comedy Central in Germany and on Comedy Central in Poland .
