Life On Mars takes a unique perspective as a show-within-a-show. David Mars keeps a daily diary in the form of a screenplay as a coping method for his anxiety. These private accounts become the “realest” piece of work he’s ever produced and this is the very screenplay that gets picked up by Ellie Blue, an up-and-coming literary agent who sees potential in Mars’ writing. As an audience, we experience David’s thought process from two perspectives: on camera as production of “Life On Mars” begins within the series, and behind-the- scenes with David as he struggles to come to terms with the fact his embarrassing life is being reenacted for the world to see.
