The scheming station head manager Cory Ellison sees in her the chance to push his career further. The show's other popular co-host Alex Levy, disgruntled by the fact that she has to take in a newbie, tries to use this new situation to make her own power move and turn Bradley into an ally. Meanwhile, Mitch refuses to accept defeat and tries to take everyone in the station who knew about his sexual abuse scandal but said nothing down with him.

Apple+ has set a high bar
28 November 2019 | by nancyldraperSee all my reviews

{Initial Impressions} Can you call it an initial impressions when you are 6 episodes deep into a 10 episode series? It's just that good! Once I started watching it, I couldn't stop until I was caught up. The acting is great. The cast is accomplished, both stars and supporting performers. The story is well defined. Do not be mislead, this is a serious drama. I can't say enough good things about it. Apple+ has set a high bar for itself with this inaugural series. I give it a 9 (superb) out of 10. {Drama}
