OWN has unveiled a first look at the upcoming summer drama, and it looks pretty awesome.

Ambitions "explores the sexy, deceitful machinations of love, power and politics in America’s hottest urban mecca, Atlanta, Georgia," according to OWN.

"The series centers around the intense rivalry between formidable legal eagles Stephanie Lancaster (Robin Givens) and Amara Hughes (Essence Atkins), former best friends from college who find themselves adversaries in both their personal and professional lives."

Amara is a woman who will go to any lengths necessary to come out on top in this battle. 

Amara is a lawyer in the U.S. Attorney's Office. Being new to Atlanta, she finds it difficult to co-exist with some of the fiery personalities.

Stephanie Carlisle is the the wife of Atlanta Mayor, Evan Lancaster (Brian J. White). 

Stephanie's loyalty is to her family's well-known law firm where she works as a lawyer. Stephanie's aim is to take over the family business, but her father thinks she's not ready to over the mantle. 

The official teaser trailer shows just how far these characters will go to get what they want, and like I said at the top of this post, this may well be one of the biggest hits of the summer on cable. 

The cast alone is enough to tune in.
