The upcoming show "tells the story of Tess (Ella Purnell), a 22-year-old who arrives in New York City ready to pursue a new life," Starz revealed in a press release.

"When she’s invited to train at one of the best restaurants in the city, she thinks she’s found a steady income and a safe place to wait. But Tess is quickly intoxicated by the chaotic, adrenalized world behind-the-scenes: tasting expensive wine, exploring dive bars, and learning who she can trust."
