The Hallmark synopsis states: "TV host Billie Blessings finds bones in the basement of an old friend's house, unearthing a dark secret that threatens to unravel the lives of the most powerful people in her city." When it comes to getting people to talk, no one does it quite like morning show host Blessings. Blessings is at the top of her game as the host of her show, 'Wake Up West Coast', and things are going quite well for the newly single TV anchor.
But turns out, it was just the calm before the storm, seeing that her family friend Maggie is in dire need of her help when her father is implicated in a murder. Blessings agrees to help clear Maggie's father's name. Detective Sergeant Tyrell Price, the new head of homicide, is not thrilled with her involvement, but can't ignore her excellent track record either. However, it looks like Price isn't the only one who has noticed Blessings, seeing that Carlos, a new brash reporter who has joined her show, also takes an interest in her.
Blessings soon discover that the truth behind the crime runs deep, with many of the city's most powerful names getting caught up in the same. Along with her aunt, Cassandra, the two of them soon find out that the pressure of high society is cut throat, literally.
