Ambitious Young Woman is an hour-long dramedy layered with warmth, gravitas, and humor. With dialogue that flies by at the speed of light and a protagonist we would walk into battle with, heart and goodwill lie at the center of the series. While the premise centers around politics on a university campus, the ramifications of the students’ actions will ripple across the entire nation. Staunch liberals of Gen Z are our heroes and they give no mercy when pursuing their progressive ideals. However, it is their evolution from young men and women into adulthood that we’re returning week-to-week for. Even as they bring down the conservative bastions of ‘The Baby Boomers’, it is the characters interpersonal lives that bring about the greatest intrigue.
