EPISODE ONE (10/3/15)

SUMMARY: Jenelle, a writer and celebrity interviewer for Variety, is surrounded by needy assistants, including Tom, who uses his possibly terminal cancer to guilt her into attending his birthday party, and Lorraine, who mispronounces Jenelle's name but gets upset when Jenelle mispronounces hers because Lorraine was kidnapped by pirates who always misprounounced her name. When they go out to a party, Jenelle's path to the bar is blocked by a total jerk who insults her unprovoked, but the evening begins to look up when she meets Curt, who recognizes Jenelle from television and is impressed to meet an Emmy winner. When a mysterious guy with a briefcase suspiciously crosses the room, Tom sneaks off and along with an accomplice, Bergernon, murders the man and steals the case. Jenelle, for her part, shoots the jerk from the bar dead when he gets in her face again. The next morning, Jenelle and Tom, each unaware of the others' double life, relax in each others' arms...

EPISODE TWO (4/9/16) - PLAYOFFS ROUND 1!

SUMMARY: Lorraine and Tom meet for lunch at a restaurant that was not actually open for business yet - the door had accidentally been left open, and the waiters freak out... they don't even have menus yet. Still, they frantically pretend that nothing's wrong. Tom surprises Lorraine by suggesting that she start getting paid for the great work she's doing for Jenelle, but Lorraine isn't sure she's ready to leave interning behind. Jenelle arrives, wanting to talk about the dark and mysterious thing that happened to her the other night... but before long, a cop comes and arrests her as a suspect in a homicide.
