The cutthroat world of morning news and the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning. Told through the lens of two complicated women working to navigate the minefield of high-octane jobs while facing crises in both their personal and professional lives, the series is an unapologetically candid drama that looks at the power dynamics between women and men, and women and women, in the workplace.
