TV show description:
Yale-educated Megan Smith (JoAnna Garcia) wants to take the world of journalism by storm. Unfortunately, that’s not as easy as it once seemed.
When she gets fired from her job at a tabloid magazine, her boss feels badly and arranges for her to meet with cosmetics entrepreneur Laurel Limoges (Anne Archer). The tycoon is looking for a live-in tutor for her twin teenage granddaughters, Rose (Lucy Kate Hale) and Sage Baker (Ashley Newbrough). Her ultimate goal is to make sure that the spoiled girls are accepted into a top university. Gorgeous Rose and Sage have been handed everything in life and aren’t quite sure what to make of chipper Megan.
After the less-than-desirable conditions of the tabloid, Megan is in awe of her new Palm Beach surroundings. Her residence is beautiful and her car is a convertible. There’s also a sympathetic private chef named Marco (Allan Louis) and the estate’s dreamboat neighbor, Will (Brian Hallisay). But not everything in Palm Beach is as perfect as it seems.
Will just happens to be dating Lily (Kristina Apgar), Megan’s estranged sister. Megan confides her disappointment to best friend Charlie (Michael Cassidy) and he must in turn hide his own because he’s secretly in love with Megan.
Though her own relationships are in turmoil, Megan is resolute in her focus to change Rose and Sage’s lives for the better and to complete her mission. As Megan puts the world of journalism on hold, the Bakers’ world is about to be rocked.
