Lucy Spiller (Courteney Cox Arquette) is the ruthless and powerful editor-in-chief of celebrity tabloid magazine DirtNow. A genius at manipulation, Lucy possesses a maniacal dedication to exposing the truth about Hollywood's luminaries. She is supported by schizophrenic photographer Don Konkey (Ian Hart) and her bisexual brother Leo Spiller (Will McCormack). Lucy is often at odds with DirtNow's publisher Brent Barrow (Jeffrey Nordling). Celebrities covered include has-been Holt McLaren (Josh Stewart) and "America's Sweetheart" Julia Mallory (Laura Allen).
