Plot Synopsis

Based on Stephanie Danler's novel of the same name, SWEETBITTER is a half-hour drama series that follows 22-year-old Tess who, shortly after arriving in New York City with no friends nor specific ambition, lands a job at a celebrated downtown restaurant. Having no experience, she's invited to train there, and attempts to keep up while observing her new co-workers. Swiftly introduced to the world of drugs, alcohol, love, lust, dive bars, and fine dining, she learns to navigate the chaotically alluring, yet punishing life she has stumbled upon. This is the story of a young woman's coming-of-age, set against the rich and grimy backdrop of exclusive restaurants, conjuring a nonstop and high-adrenaline world evoking the possibility, beauty, and fragility of being young and adrift.
On Sunday, June 10, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT, Starz premiered "It's Mine," the season finale of SWEETBITTER. After a long night of partying until sunrise, Tess finds herself in a less than ideal state for her big day at the restaurant. Today is her final exam, and she will either pass her trails and be hired as a backwaiter, or fail and lose her newfound family for good.
