Booked is a single-camera, workplace comedy set in the ridiculous, petty, high-drama world of soap operas. It covers the space between camp, daft comedy, and beautiful, serious moments between vulnerable characters. It's Extras meets The Office. When Miranda's dad's declining health forces him to put her in charge of his stalwart TV network, she can't wait to start making some changes. Namely, axe that old chestnut soap opera, Heart and Soul. Her vision is to rebuild the network like a hipper FX or AMC with shows to rival everything from The Walking Dead to Dancing with the Stars. She gleefully kills off all the soap's characters with a fire in its school-set main story. But Miranda didn't figure the old man's stubbornness into her calculations. Her father informs her the only way she gets to keep her job as network head is if she revamps his life's work and makes Heart and Soul a commercial and critical success. He wants a goddamn daytime Emmy.
