Synopsis by Mark Deming

A woman finds having a high profile career and a romance with a famous musician can have both ups and downs in this urban-themed comedy-drama. Mia Moore (Chrystale Wilson) is a young woman who is trying to get her career as an entertainment reporter off the ground, but so far the best she's been able to do is hosting a video show on public access cable. Short on money, Mia gets a rommate, Pancake (Naki Brown), which turns out to be a major stroke of luck for Mia -- Pancake is able to introduce Mia to Marvin (Machion Garrison), who works for television producer Derrek Lassten (Bill Nunn). Lassten is looking for hosts for his new show "Backstage Entertainment," and Marvin thinks Mia might be just what he's looking for. Lassten agrees, and Mia has finally landed the sort of job she's been dreaming of. One of Mia's first assignments is to interview rapper Gipp (Big Gipp), and Mia and Gipp soon discover they have a more than professional interest in one another. But while Mia is in love with Gipp, she doesn't want to seem unprofessional to her employers, while Gipp isn't sure if Mia is sincere, or if she's only interested in him as a way of advancing her career.
