Television spin-off. A large pharmaceutical company is desperately searching for a new best-selling drug to boost its failing profit margins. A new anti-depressant is pounced on by the directors, and, needing the money and employment, the drug's developer concedes to their needs. It becomes a top selling drug, and its inventor a media star, until side-effects appear. Repeat users become 'stuck' on their moment of greatest happiness.
