About the Show

FREE TO THE PUBLIC! NO TICKETS NECESSARY!

Sports agent Liz Rico has money and an elite client roster but a woman in a man's industry has to fight to stay on top. She's worked twice as hard to get where she is and wants to take over the agency that she's helped build. Enter Freddie Luna, a high school basketball superstar with a troubled past. If Liz can keep this talented, yet volatile young star in line, she just might end up making not only his career, but her own as well. But at what price?
