ITV's new soap Echo Beach is just days away from launching and new producer Jonathan Pope is hired. He makes sure he is public enemy number 1 in the production office, as he throws out everyone's ideas and brings in fresh new ideas, stories and characters. Everyone disagrees with the ideas but Pope is convinced his ideas will make Echo Beach a ratings hit. Is he right? Time will tell... Welcome to Moving Wallpaper the show set in the fictional production office of the soap, Echo Beach.
It's Jonathan's birthday, but that's not stopping him from working. He is proud of how Episode 1 of Echo Beach turned out. Everyone is for a surprise when their wages are handed out. Nancy makes it clear that she wants Jonathan to fail in his new job.
Gillian has been mugged and Jonathan who is trying to be more of a team player now, accompanies her to the police station. As Jonathan feels out of the loop and the tea run, he moves into the production office, distracting the writers with his noisy habits. But Jonathan's attempts at being nice gets on people's nerves and upsets them.
It's the TV Quick awards show, but Nancy will not pay for a table. Johnathan feels Nancy refusing to pay it the last straw, and quits. Episode 4, the explosion episode is coming up and that episode is the one they are aiming to beat EastEnders to in the Spectacular Scene of the Year award at the British Soap Awards. With no Jonathan for this crucial episode, Sam is left in charge.
Hugo Speer has quit Echo Beach. No not really. But that's the crisis the team has to deal with when Jonathan pretends he has, in order to give the team a push. But then Jonathan is the one in for a shock when he learns his rumor may be true after all.
As the temperature rises, Jonathan spots Sam canoodling on set with one of the Echo Beach actors. Her increasingly bizarre suggestions for storylines convince the rest of the team she has lost the plot completely and her ideas could threaten the integrity of the show.
Mel creates a stir by announcing she has landed Ewan McGregor to appear in the show. Jonathan basks in the reflected glory and orders a script rewrite but Nancy pours cold water on the celebrations by announcing their big-name signing has no intention of making a cameo appearance.
The Christian Viewers' Association complain about episode seven and Nancy invites them to meet the crew, believing the show has pushed the boundaries and needs to be toned down. Tom steps up his flirtation with Kelly but, stung by a remark from Jonathan, sets out to write a deeply emotional scene to prove he is not shallow.
Nancy thinks the writers are too old and urges Jonathan to fire one of them. A desperate contest ensues as they try to prove they are cool, hip and worth keeping on. Carl develops a morbid obsession with death.
The team are forced to go to Cornwall and visit the set. Jonathan brings an actress along as his date, but Nancy warns him not to cast her in the show. Susie Amy also does not want a rival and resorts to black mailing Jonathan.
The sand riddle, has been leaked to the press, and Nancy is not happy. She decides to stick around, and keep an eye on things, which just leads to chaos. Especially when she suggest to the team, that they should kill Fin in the next episode.
It's the final episode. A second series is not guaranteed. With the show also being £100,000 over budget, Jonathan realises in order to get Series 2, he may have to fire one of the stars in order to stay on budget. Jonathan decides on getting rid of one of the three biggest stars. Jason, Martine or Hugo.
