Plot Synopsis

Developed for television by executive producer Josh Berman and based on Star Jones' book, "Satan's Sisters," DAYTIME DIVAS is a one-hour scripted drama series that goes behind the scenes of a long-running daytime television show, chronicling the fireworks that erupt daily between the five female co-hosts. Maxine, the creator/host of the popular talk show "The Lunch Hour," is joined by four co-hosts: Mo, Kibby, Nina and Heather. On screen, they are best friends with five very different points of view discussing life, love and politics, but behind the scenes, they inhabit a world of power struggles, cat fights and cocktails. The five co-hosts are:

Mo Evans: She's an ambitious and driven co-host on the Lunch Hour. She's a stand-up comic with no edit button which gets her into trouble with Maxine, the show's creator and lead host. Mo owns her sexuality and she apologizes to no one.

Kibby Ainsley: A former child star and out pansexual, she is smart and is trying to turn her life around after rehab. She has a troubled relationship with her own mother, so she sees Maxine as a mother figure and mentor.

Nina Sandoval: Nina is a professional, successful, former war correspondent and confident, co-host of The Lunch Hour. Like her co-hosts, Nina is a gem on camera but will stand up for herself backstage even if it means fighting with the women she works with. While the show is in turmoil, Nina is currently figuring out the best way to hide a secret from her future-congressman husband.

Heather Flynn-Kellogg: Heather is a former-beauty queen and self-proclaimed spiritual guide of The Lunch Hour. Heather is a modest and driven co-host of a highly popular daytime talk show. Though she claims to be the forgiving one, she'll occasionally hold her moral superiority over someone's head if it means getting a leg up.

Maxine Robinson: Maxine is The Lunch Hour's creator and host. She is a formidable, powerful and decisive woman who fears she's being put out to pasture.
On Monday, July 31, 2017 from 10pm-Midnight ET/PT, VH1 premiered the two-hour season finale of DAYTIME DIVAS, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the season ender, "Whose Show is it Anyway?; Lunch Is On Us," Maxine schemes to control Mo. Nina starts investigating Maxine's past. Heather's decision to exercise her second amendment rights alienates her co-stars. Kibby spirals out of control, putting the entire cast in danger. Tensions come to a head.
