Season 1

Enlightened is an offbeat series written by Mike White and starring Laura Dern as Amy, a self-destructive health and beauty executive who has a very public workplace meltdown.

After three months of contemplation and meditation at a treatment centre in Hawaii, Amy returns rested and ready to pick up the pieces of her old life and reshape the world she left behind.

That includes delivering well-meaning, but generally unwanted advice to her mother Helen (Diane Ladd), with whom Amy is now living; her slacker ex-husband Levi (Luke Wilson) whose only solace comes from recreational drugs; and the crew of awkward co-workers Amy finds herself reassigned to.

The series follows Amy as she navigates an unconventional path between who she is, who she wants to be... and what everyone is willing to tolerate from her.

In 2012, Laura Dern won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress - Television Series Musical or Comedy for her role in the series. The show was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy.
