Show Synopsis

Max owns one of the world’s most influential media empires. Information is his trade: he holds dark secrets on everyone, and uses his power ruthlessly.

His son Caden is the youngest ever editor of Max’s prized mouthpiece, The National newspaper. But Caden is crumbling under the pressure of his father’s expectation, numbing his pain with cocaine and intense anonymous sex.
