TV show description:
A dramatic series, this TV show tells the story of a young woman from a modest upbringing who discovers she may have a bright future in Washington DC’s fast-paced political scene.
When Anna (Danielle Savre) leaves her trailer park home in Alabama in a cloud of dust, she cuts all ties with her family and buries every element of her checkered past. Her friends in Washington think she comes from a wealthy family and know nothing of her real upbringing.
The real Anna is exposed when she causes a major scandal by having an affair with a powerful and married politician. This makes national headlines and, with nowhere else to turn, she’s forced to find sanctuary in the only place she’d hoped to leave behind — home.
Back in the ironically named town of Happy, Alabama, Anna reunites with her family — her controlling mother Jolene (Trisha Rae Stahl); her sweet and overburdened sister, Bonnie (Kelly Sullivan); and her drug-addicted sister, Shelby (Brooke Anne Smith).
Although Anna’s left behind a mess in DC, there are serious problems brewing in Happy and she is quickly thrown into the drama. She also has to confront unfinished business with her high school sweetheart, Brody (Brock O’Hurn).
Broken and battered, Anna must ultimately seek help and forgiveness from the same people she abandoned for a “better” life.
