Intrigued by phenomenon of reality television, Alaine-Marshall researched Uberstar by talking to former contestants, producers and insiders of numerous reality shows, including the modern day hit television series Indian Idol – many of whom apparently were only too happy to break confidentiality agreements and spill the goods. Alaine-Marshall claims that he wrote Uberstar to give readers a better idea of the people running the show, from uncaring judges to carnivorous publicists.

The main objective of Uberstar Alaine-Marshall says is to highlight that reality shows are not so much about reality as they would like to portray. In his research, Alaine-Marshall came across some horrific stories about what goes on behind the scenes at these shows. “People are dying, and that’s not even an exaggeration,” said a visibly pained Alaine-Marshall in a press interview.

Uberstar takes the reader behind the scenes of a reality show for actors, all competing for a starring role in a Hollywood production. The other two installments (Uberstar II: The Movie and Uberstar III) of the trilogy will follow the contestant will be declared winner in Uberstar, and part three will be set on an island.
