The series, which has the emotional charge of X Factor meets Footballer’s Wives, sees Karina (Michelle Collins) and Mal Faith (Sean Gallagher) go to war as the bickering judges on the phenomenally successful television series ‘Rock Rivals’. When Mal’s affair with an assistant becomes public knowledge, all hell breaks loose and their marriage spectacularly and very publicly implodes. Karina and Mal’s tangled web is made even more complicated by their various assistants – Pete Shepherd (James Anderson) who works with Mal as an A&R man and Associate Producer, Sundae Gorgeous (Nicola Hughes) who is the contestants’ vocal coach, and Jinx Jones (Sophia Dawnay) who is hired by Mal as an executive assistant but is more obsessed with pursuing Mal and destroying his marriage.
