Screener Girl Takes A Look At The First Two Episodes From Season 2 Of Dirt
Courteney Cox is back as Dirt Now editor Lucy Spiller, fresh off her Season 1 ending stabbing at the hands of crazy actress Julia Mallory (Lily Allen in a very small cameo). She’s still cutthroat and possibly a little bit evil. But she’s still a smart business woman who is just trying to produce the best magazine possible. Along for the ride this season are her best friend Don Konky (Ian Hart), on his schizophrenia medication for the first time in a long time. Gone are the conversations with his cat and his ghostly visions of his dead celebrity crush. He seems to be the only person with Lucy’s best interests at heart.
Holt McLaren (Josh Stewart) is back again this season. He is obviously still in love with Lucy, which is difficult now that he’s reached mega-stardom. In the two episodes I saw, it looks like there might be a little hope for them, and that’s a good thing! Last year, Willa (Alexandra Breckenridge) slept with the big boss, and tried as best as she could to out do Lucy. This year, she seems more put-in-her-place and just wants to help make Dirt Now a great magazine.
New characters and great guest stars abound – Ryan Eggold is new to the show as a “real journalist” named Farber, trying to get into the publishing world. Lucy is impressed by his ability to get into her hospital room when no other reporters had been able to, and she hires him to help Dirt Now.
