Sweetbitter premieres


22-year-old Tess, who shortly after arriving in New York City, lands a job at a celebrated downtown restaurant. From trying her first oyster to snorting her first line of cocaine, Tess throws herself wholeheartedly into this vivid, chaotic community with little consideration of the consequences of her actions and without the briefest pause for self-reflection.
Now introduced to the world of drugs, drinking, love, lust, dive bars and fine dining, she learns to navigate the chaotically alluring, yet punishing life she has stumbled upon.
It is how the sweet, sour, salt, bitter and umami threaten, complement and ultimately need each other so we can learn to taste.
The six-episode first season begins Sundays on Starz.
