Watch the Season 2 trailer…

Season 1 saw Dern’s Amy Jellicoe finding a philosophical new outlook on life following a very public breakdown. Deposed from her executive job with Abbadon Industries, Amy was given a menial new role in the company, which led her to stumble upon damaging evidence of corruption.

As the second season gets under way, idealistic Amy decides that her calling is to bring Abbadon to justice and she twists the arm of timid colleague Tyler (writer and co-creator White) to help her cause.

Amy passes her findings on to whistleblowing journalist Jeff Flender (guest star Dermot Mulroney) in the hope that he’ll run a front-page story exposing her employer’s unethical practices. But she is disappointed to find that Jeff isn’t quite as enthusiastic about her research as she is. However, the charming reporter has another Abbadon exposé in mind, and he’s looking for Amy to help.
