TV Show of the Week: "The Lying Nun"

1/2 hour weekly comedy. Bernie Taubman (Jon Lovitz) from the Bronx is a compulsive liar who wants to be a nun so badly that he'll say anything to do it--even though he's a man, and Jewish. Maybe the shortage of potential nuns has made the screening committee blind to potential warning signs, like an obvious 5 o'clock shadow, but somehow "Bernice" actually makes it through the application process. She becomes Holy Cross Novice Sister Lucy, and is sent to the Order's St. Francis Academy, to teach and complete her novitiate. Bride of Christ or not, Sister Lucy just can't shake old habits and her lies are becoming bigger and more noticable everyday, creating a new crisis every week.
