Plot Synopsis

SHOOT THE MESSENGER is a one-hour scripted drama series that centers on Daisy Channing, a whip-smart and relentless writer, who's fresh out of journo school and keen to make her mark at "The Gazette." While meeting a contact for a story who promises her something big, she witnesses his friend's cold-blooded murder. It's a hell of a scoop, but the police Detective on the case is her lover, Kevin Lutz, and he's not talking. Daisy's powerful curiosity takes her to forbidden places and reveals that far more is going on than she could have imagined. The blowback is real and she's in serious danger. Her personal life's down the tubes as she fails to care properly for her brain-damaged father, driving a wedge between Daisy and her sister Chloe. Daisy's stressed like never before. Will she be strong enough to avoid the self- destructive ways of her secret past? Helping Daisy is Simon, a senior reporter at "The Gazette," who moved from the City Hall beat to crime a few years back, and now must mentor Daisy at the direction of his editor, Mary Foster. Before long Simon begins to have real feelings for Daisy which puts him in a quandary. He has a fiancee, but he's drawn to the sexy, hungry cub reporter who brings some spark back into his life. Meanwhile, Attorney General Sam Charles has his eye on becoming Prime Minister of Canada, and as an eligible bachelor, he's been dating a string of socialites and models. At the moment, he's in a hush-hush affair with his assistant Chloe Channing. But that's not his only secret. He's been so good lately, and now everything that he's built could be reduced to dust. Unless he can figure a way out. WGN America aired the U.S. premiere of SHOOT THE MESSENGER on Monday, February 26, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT.
