THe pilot is based on the first single on the album, "I Won't Go Back", and addresses domestic violence, addiction, and getting away from abuse, as well as addressing all the hardships artists face trying to make it in Hollywood. The series as a whole focuses on female empowerment and modern relationships. A powerful underdog story of an independent female artist creating her dreams, perservering and overcoming every hardship that comes with telling her personal story, and the love story that fueled her movement.
