Characters: Producing Parker

Parker Kovak

The titular character and the overworked, underpaid, and under-appreciated producer of The Dee Show.

  • Ambidextrous Sprite: She has a strand of of her hair that bends upward and bangs which go diagonally across her face. While they're on and toward the right side of her head (her perspective) when she's shown from in front, they otherwise flip around to what side would be in the background.
  • Brainy Brunette: She is the brains behind The Dee Show.
  • Butt Monkey: Things rarely go right for her. For example, the end of "A Friend in Dee" was Parker watching Simon's expose of a third-world spa she went to on a serious news channel... only it turned out it was accidentally footage of her being interrupted while getting a bikini wax.
  • Evil Laugh: Indulged in "Bully for Parker" when her plan to get to revenge on her high school bully is ready, while shining a flashlight upon her face from underneath for added effect.
  • Married to the Job: Parker's main out-of-work confidant is her talking dog. She loves him but clearly regrets that this is the case.
  • Weirdness Magnet: Most, if not all of the craziness in the show is centered around her.
  • Workaholic: Despite languishing as the producer of The Dee Show, Parker usually insists she loves her job and keeps doing it. She is certainly aware and regrets the effect this has caused on her personal life, though.

Massimo

Parker's dog and best friend.

Dee

The alcoholic, self-absorbed and high maintenance host of The Dee Show.

  • The Alcoholic: She's more or less never without a cocktail glass. If she isn't, she's just downing an entire bottle instead.
    • In "Age Dee-fying", she goes missing leaving Parker to use Massimo to follow her scent to find her around the world... and the very obvious thick line of empty alcohol bottles she left her in wake.
  • All Women Are Lustful: She'll attempt to seduce any attractive male guest on her show, even if said guest is married.
  • Attention Whore: A number of episodes are her insisting The Dee Show's staff do something for her to get into a recent trend to help her stay in the spotlight.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Mentioning Victoria. It once gave her a Hollywood Heart Attack!
    • Anyone who implies she's not perfect for whatever reason sends her into fury. This is incredibly frequent among the episodes.
    • A co-worker guessed her age was 50 on her birthday. It appeared to cause Dee to breath fire on them like a giant monster.
  • Drama Queen: Anything going contrary to her hopes sends her into loud sobbing and drinking even more heavily. This is usually preceded with wailing in anger too.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Dee reads a book she has to know for her next show in "Eat, Pray, Parker" while driving to work - it's appropriately wild and incites a police car to chase her until it crashes trying. She also takes a drink while driving, which is probably happens all the time, knowing her.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: In "Eat, Pray, Parker", Dee figured out Jackie Cartwright is actually a man pretending to be a woman.
  • Female Misogynist: While she hosts a feminist talk show, she shows that she couldn't care less about other women and often uses them to her advantage.
  • Fiery Redhead: Well, she wears a wig technically... but her emotions are definitely very volatile.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Anything going contrary to her hopes sets her off.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: Her waist's thinnest part is half as wide as her breasts and hips.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In "And Dee Winner Is...", after going to Losers Anonymous and mellowing out (temporarily), Dee heard about Parker failing to find clothes to wear for attending the Blabby Awards and gives her a dress.
  • It's All About Me: Very much so.
    Here at Dee, we believe in beauty...and by we, I mean me.
  • Large Ham: When she's not in a small conversation, she's overacting. And it's not unlikely she's overacting in a conversation anyway.
  • Raised by Wolves: She was raised by a family of cougars. That's not just an Incredibly Lame Pun.
  • Really Gets Around: It's not uncommon for her to mention how she has a lot of sex. While not always proven, it's implied to not be just bragging.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Her eyes are green, her red hair however is a wig. Of course, considering how she's an Attention Whore, the choice of a red wig to go with her green eyes could be an Invoked Trope.
  • Smug Smiler: Dee's smile is more self-satisfied than joyous. When she is joyous, you can be sure it's for an especially selfish reason.
  • Vague Age: Her true age is a very well kept secret. The episode "Age Dee-fying" has Parker say asking Dee's age is forbidden by contract.

Blake Bellamy

The rich, young head of Bellamy Broadcasting.

  • Eccentric Millionaire: The first episode has him suggest to his executives that his network try to cash in on fake reality shows by making a weekly show where in one of said executives go in a tank with a live shark. He responds to their terrified fleeing with "Well gentlemen, think it over, get back to me in five.". In "And Dee Winner Is...", he joins the office betting pool of the Blabby Awards for Dee hitting Victoria with a bottle at the awards' presentation.
  • Oblivious to Love: Parker has a crush on him.

Simon

Parker's co-worker who serves as the writer for The Dee Show. He aspires to work on hard hitting news instead of writing segments for a talk show.

  • Hidden Depths: Simon decries the book 'Feast, Ride, Salsa' when he first hears about it but reads it as necessary to write the author's appearance for The Dee Show. He calls it "populist drivel" and says it didn't do much for him but then it cuts to him sobbing "I'll never meet a woman like that!".
  • Nice Hat: Rarely seen without his fedora.
  • Only Sane Man: The most level-headed person on staff on The Dee Show.
  • Real Men Wear Pink:
  • The Slacker: Compared to Parker going about doing what needs doing, Simon's standard pose is leaning back on his chair lazily.
  • Stalker with a Crush: For Mimi Chui. The pictures he takes of her in "Recipe For Dee-saster" are so extensive, they count as an alibi proving she couldn't of went and poisoned Dee.

Chicago

Parker's attractive, yet under-qualified and dimwitted intern and Blake Bellamy's cousin.

  • Incest Is Relative: Admits she would be... interested... in Blake were she not a cousin of him.
  • Too Dumb to Live: In "Dog Dee Afternoon", she reads out a phone message that says there's a bomb in the building. Everyone else runs away panicked to which she responds "Where did everyone go?" until Simon pushes her along with them.
  • Too Much Information: Regularly incites such reactions from Parker who usually stops her before she completely finishes saying what's already obvious.

Russell

Dee's flamboyantly gay personal stylist and best friend.

Victoria Lafayette

Dee's arch nemesis.
