This glossy drama focuses upon the superficial world of an X-Factor-like TV talent show, with Michelle Collins playing panel judge Karina Faith, and Sean Gallagher playing her husband and fellow judge, Mal Faith.
The power couple have all the trappings of a successful life, that is until Mal makes one devastating mistake that sees them battling each other both on and off the air. Each must cope with the pressure of splitting their home while fighting to get their proteges to the final of "Rock Rivals".
The show also has a unique angle: two alternate endings were filmed, with the audience deciding between the penultimate and final episodes - thus deciding who will win "Rock Rivals".
Starring: Sean Gallagher, Michelle Collins, Alison Newman, Sophia Dawnay, Nicola Hughes, Adam Leese, Sol Heras, Holly Quin-Ankrah
