Julia George, producer of nighttime news segment Louise Herrick Live, is a bad ass at work and does whatever she can to raise ratings and get the show trending.
Jake Gregorian is an attorney who partners who Julia to twist his client's stories on the air and work the narrative in both of their favors.
One rule: they never lie to each other. But will they start to now?
Jake has an affair with his client's wife, who killed a 15-year-old boy in a hit and run, leaving Oscar to take the blame at first. But when she was unexpectedly murdered, her life is thrown into the air as well as Oscar's.
The damning photos Julia receives show that Sarah was the victim of domestic abuse, Sarah slept with Jake the night before she was killed, and Oscar has been having an affair, too. He has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, could he be back down that road?
Meanwhile, Julia has her own problems: her boyfriend, now ex-boyfriend, is a federal judge that hires and sleeps with escorts when he's out of town. Will Julia use this story and destroy his life, or is her own personal life off limits?
