Deep Doo-Doo focuses on a young newspaper reporter, Carrie Ellen McClelland, as she embarks on her first week covering the crime beat for The Press Democrat in Santa Rosa, California. It's a dangerous and often hilarious adventure that involves her covering several criminal activities as well as a group of dedicated, goose-loving, animal rights activists who stage a demonstration in the streets of downtown Santa Rosa in opposition to the production, sale and distribution of foie gras in Sonoma County. Carrie must prove herself to editors while facing down grifters, gangsters and guns. She must make sense out of the zany antics of Northern California protesters. And, she must keep her wits about her . . . or it'll be her goose that's cooked!
