Season 2

Dirt is a drama series that chronicles the life of Lucy Spiller, the ruthless, powerful editor-in-chief of the celebrity tabloid magazines Dirt and Now which get amalugumated into one tabloid called DirtNow.

A genius at the art of manipulation, Lucy possesses a maniacal dedication to exposing the truth about Hollywood's luminaries, for reasons even she has yet to fully fathom.

As steadfast photographer Don Konkey constantly provides exclusive, shocking pictures of the rich and famous for Lucy's magazines, the glossy, perfect veneer created by Hollywood is shattered - and available on newsstands every week.

Dirt exposes the truth behind the façade of show business image making, and reveals the lives of those determined to do so, despite often tragic results.

The second season of Dirt continues where the first season left off: Lucy lays bleeding and unconscious after a brutal, in-home attack at the hands of actress Julia Mallory, whose career was destroyed by Dirt Now.

Don Konkey struggles to overcome his schizophrenia through medication as he is shattered by Lucy's assault.

Holt McLaren ascends to A-list stardom and has left Julia.

Willa McPherson has ended her affair with Dirt Now publisher Brent Barrow and is no longer the naïve, neophyte reporter on Lucy's staff.
