You knew Hollywood would be difficult.

So when you land a job in television, you're ready for anything: pulling all-nighters, leaning on your powerful mother's contacts, keeping your boss happy whatever - and whoever - the cost.

You thrive under pressure, and are determined to excel. But there's a dark side to the industry that's about to rear its head. And soon, you must decide your place in it:

Follower. Troublemaker. People-pleaser. Rulebreaker.

If you don't know who you are yet, how can you know where you stand?

But no one is supposed to have it all figured out . . . Right?
