Unknown to the eager new interns, the entire agency is fictional and the employees are a cleverly cast mix of talented actors: Devil Wears Prada type Joanna Grade and her three extreme members of staff - Joanna's brash ex-husband and business partner Colby, her walking diary Susan, and opinionated and flamboyant creative force Shussi. The first new interns, Thomas and Aquila are thrilled to learn that Grade PR promotes a new clothing collection designed by rap superstar Lethal Bizzle. Unfortunately, an accident with a steamer and an indecent proposal combine to produce a photoshoot that Thomas and Aquila will never forget. At the end of the episode, the fictional element is revealed to Thomas and Aquila, whose efforts are rewarded by a full month's paid placement, giving them invaluable first-hand experience at a real fashion PR agency.
