Brett and Kelly have always toed the line between supportive sisters and bitter rivals. Growing up, Brett was the problem child, in the shadow of the brilliant and beautiful Kelly. In adulthood, all that has changed. Kelly is a struggling single mother, and Brett has skyrocketed to such meteoric success, which has been chronicled on a reality TV show called “Goal Diggers.” When Kelly manipulates herself onto the show and into Brett’s world, Brett is right to be threatened. Kelly, and only Kelly, knows her younger sister's appalling secret, and it could ruin her. Still, when the truth comes out in the explosive final weekend of filming, neither of them ever expected that the season would end in murder.

When five hyper-successful women agree to appear on a reality series, the producers never expect the season will end in murder. Brett is the fan favorite. The meteoric success of her spin studio --- and her recent engagement to her girlfriend --- has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her castmates. Kelly is Brett’s older sister and business partner. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now --- a role that requires her to protect their shocking secret. Stephanie, the first black cast member, is a successful bestselling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett --- and resentment soon breeds contempt.
