Plot Synopsis: Bridget Kelly is a 6-month sober ex-stripper who is in FBI protective custody waiting to testify against a crime boss named Bodaway Macawi. She was the only witness to his murdering of a stripper. Afraid for her life, she pistol whips her FBI guard and runs away to New York to visit her estranged twin, Siobhan. They have an awkward reconciliation and go boating. Bridget wakes up to find Siobhan missing, seemingly having killed herself. However, conveniently, her wedding rings were tucked away in an Rx bottle. Freaked, Bridget makes the decision to “take over” her sister’s life to get away from hers – unknowingly entering Siobhan’s just as messed up one. Perfect set up, since Siobhan didn’t tell anyone she even had a twin.
The rest of the cast can be quickly summed up as follows: Victor Machado is Bridget’s FBI handler who is now searching for her, Andrew Martin is Siobhan’s rude husband, Juliet Martin is Andrew’s snotty teenage daughter, and Henry and Gemma Butler are married, along with being Siobhan’s creepy stare-y lover and overly peppy BFF, respectively.
