Bracken's World s01e08
Titre original : The Stunt
Actor Brock Jordan is scheduled to star in Kevin's upcoming tv series, ""Contraband."" Although he has a reputation as a rugged actor, Brock relies on stunt men to perform his stunts, a fact kept secret from his fans and his young son. The plot of ""Contraband"" calls for a dangerous jump into the back of a moving truck, which Davey Evans is slated to perform. Davey is not fond of Brock because of Brock's efforts to romance Davey's sometimes girlfriend, Paulette Douglas. On the day of the stunt, Brock's son visits the set and realizes that his father does not perform his own stunts. Brock attempts to rectify the situation by doing the stunt himself, but Davey intervenes, falls and is injured. From the stretcher, Davey convinces the son that Brock is a hero after all.
