Katy Keene (Hale) may be a legendary fashion designer one day. But, for now, she struggles to manage the pressures of her day job at Lacy’s Department Store, working under her very demanding boss, Gloria (LaNasa), a legendary personal shopper. Fortunately, Katy has the support of her longtime boyfriend, KO Kelly (Holtz), who has his own dream of becoming a professional boxer.
Katy designs clothes for anyone she can and that includes her friend and roommate, singer/songwriter Josie McCoy (Murray). Her singing talent catches the attention of Alexander Cabot (Laviscount), a CEO who hopes to reboot the record label division of his father’s corporate empire. But Alexander’s dream of signing Josie to a recording contract meets resistance from Cabot Media’s powerful senior vice president, Alexandra (Hyde), who also happens to be Alexander’s twin sister.
Josie and Katy’s roommate is performer Jorge Lopez (Beauchamp). He works at his family’s bodega and has his eye on Broadway, but after a series of rejections, he hopes to take his drag performance career as Ginger to the next level.
Meanwhile, mysterious “It Girl” Pepper Smith (Chan) plans to open her own version of Andy Warhol’s Factory. She has the connections, but no one seems to know where she got her money — or if she really has any at all.
As these aspiring artists take on the runway, the recording studio, Broadway, and the NYC social scene, they find more than just a career in the big city. They also find long-lasting friendships.
