That's a pretty common trope.

That's not a criticism - TV thrives on these kinds of stories ... but it has been done many times before.

I know I've seen it on 'Sabrina' (which I was watching for .. umm ... research) - and there was a film with that conceit as well. (I think it was called 'The Real Story' ?)

I've seen it in several other places too - but they escape me.

Again - this isn't a criticism. In fact - it shows you've got the style of the show nailed down when you are generating similar story lines to the actual show.

Good luck !
