Synopsis

Twenty-three-year-old Megan Smith (Joanna Garcia) has a Yale education, a relentlessly positive attitude and a plan to conquer the world of journalism, despite the fact that she is currently slaving away at a tabloid rag.

Megan's plan is thrown off course when, in one whirlwind day, she gets fired, meets cosmetics mogul Laurel Limoges (Anne Archer) and becomes the live-in tutor for Laurel's twin teen granddaughters in the heady Palm Beach world of wealth and power.

The girls, Rose (Lucy Hale) and Sage (Ashley Newbrough), are beautiful, rebellious and less-than-thrilled with their new tutor, but Megan is determined to win them over as she enjoys the perks of her new job - breathtaking private suite, gorgeous convertible and live-in chef Marco (Allan Louis).

Even the neighbors are fabulous in Palm Beach, and Megan quickly catches the eye of Will (Brian Hallisay), the wealthy and extremely hot dilettante who lives on the estate next door and just happens to be dating Megan's estranged sister Lily (Kristina Apgar).

Completing this romantic quadrangle is Megan's best friend Charlie (Michael Cassidy), who is secretly in love with her.

Despite her own complicated romantic and family relationships, Megan is committed to making a difference in the lives of her two headstrong charges as she navigates the treacherous waters of high society in Palm Beach.

Privileged is based on the Alloy Entertainment book How To Teach Filthy Rich Girls by best-selling author Zoey Dean.

The series is from Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Paramount Network Television with executive producers Rina Mimoun (Gilmore Girls, Everwood), Bob Levy (Gossip Girl) and Leslie Morgenstein (Gossip Girl, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants).

Michael Engler (30 Rock) directed the pilot.
