How To Be Famous Synopsis

Meet three women who have beauty to burn, talent to spare, and more dates than Hollywood has hills.

 

Lynsey Dixon works at CMG in London, a talent agency that specializes in neurotic actresses like Melanie Chaplin. After keeping her cool in a crisis, Lynsey is offered a transfer to L.A to help Melanie settle into a new television show – her big break. And Lynsey can recognize an opportunity when she sees one – an opportunity for serious star spotting and sunny days.

Melanie Chaplin is the star of a new hit TV series, the prize of CMG, the object of desire for LA’s hottest players. But being famous can make you forget yourself. Melanie has everything except Davey Black – the gorgeous director who is married in real life, but not in Melanie’s dreams…

Serena Simon didn’t exactly choose Hollywood – when you look as beautiful as Serena Hollywood is the only place to go. She has a plan, and it’s working; fame is only a photoshoot away. But she’s got a little secret. And secrets rarely stay that way in L.A…
