DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, March 2014) Welcome to THE CLUB... it is Connecticut's most exclusive with stunning vistas, rolling fairways, impeccable courts. Money and connections will get you in, but the beautiful people and their scandals will keep you coming back. At its center of things are the descendants of THE CLUB's founding family: the powerful and wealthy Holbrooke family. Flawless blond Mickey is the queen bee and a force to be reckoned with. This tightly wound tennis champ is never far from a glass of wine or anti-anxiety pills. Her father is 79-year-old Winston Holbrooke III. The old man has still 'got it,' but that didn't stop his trophy wife from leaving him - for his eldest son, Win. Before the two ran off together, Win left the finances of the club in the hands of a Wall Street scammer. Now, the club is millions in debt and may not survive. Mickey's husband Randy is considered a pushy jerk, but is keeping the place afloat with lots of cash. The SEC is after him and agents want Mickey to testify against Randy. She wants to be loyal to her husband, at least in these matters, but something is making her doubt his loyalty to her. The members at the club have their alliances, rivalries, and affairs on and off the courts and fairways. And sometimes they cross the lines with the people who indulge their every desire. Towel boy, Jesse, is the target of Mickey and Randy's gold card carrying 17-year-old triplets who make bets on who can seduce him first. They aren't the only ones lusting after him. And pursuing Ana, who also works at the club, is Mickey's 23 year-old brother, Forty, just back from rehab. Definitely against the employee rules, like accepting tips. Ana's mother and head of staff, Hilda, wouldn't hesitate to fire her own daughter if she finds out. But she's cleaned up lots of dirty laundry in this place... and we're not talking towels. A decadent and seductive drama from Oscar nominee Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich, Ever After, Party of Five).
