Plot Synopsis

Created by executive producer/writer Jamey Giddens, AMBITIONS is a one-hour drama series that explores the sexy, deceitful machinations of love, power and politics in America's hottest urban mecca: Atlanta, Georgia. The series centers around the intense rivalry between formidable legal eagles Stephanie Carlisle and Amara Hughes, former best friends from college who find themselves adversaries in both their personal and professional lives.

Amara is a lawyer in the U.S. Attorney's Office, and has newly arrived in Atlanta with her husband, Titus. Originally from Texas, she is quickly gaining attention from the U.S. Attorney's Office as a diligent investigator and prosecutor. Titus has accepted the challenge of being in-house counsel for a big pharma company run by Hunter Purifoy to fight a class action suit brought by the powerful Carlisle family, led by Stephanie's father.

Hailing from a long line of distinguished attorneys, Stephanie desperately wants to be in charge of her family's prestigious law firm and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Stephanie's husband, Evan Lancaster, is the Mayor of Atlanta and dreams of being the first African-American governor of Georgia -- and there's no line he won't cross to get there. Evan's sister, Rondell, is manager of the Thelma's Place restaurant. As the new face of an anti-gentrification campaign, she never thought she'd become a crusader for the people, but it's a badge she wears with pride -- and nobody is removing it. Stephanie's dress designer, Tru, is Atlanta's newest and trendiest fashion designer, but she has set her sights much higher.

On Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 10:30pm ET/PT, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network debuted a half-hour special that took an all-access look at the series, which premiered one week later -- Tuesday, June 18 -- at 10pm. OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network debuted the mid-season premiere of AMBITIONS on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT. In the fall premiere, "The Thrill Is Gone," Evan and Rondell demand justice from Greg; Titus and Amara work to reconcile; Stephanie pushes back against Greg's cousin.
On Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network premiered "Save the Best for Last," the season finale of AMBITIONS. Stephanie and Amara keep their friends close and enemies closer. Who will make it out alive? Who will win, Damian or Stephanie?
