Deborah Vance, a comedy legend, has arrived at Las Vegas for a soon-to-be-record-setting meeting. However, her star has faded, and she is told that her record-setting show will be her last. In an effort to refresh her career, Deborahs agent co-hosts the down-on-her-lucky comedy writer Ava.
Each of them is equally as happy to be working together, which is to say not much. However, slowly they begin to establish a rapport Ava discovers that Deborah''s career is more valuable than she initially thought, while Deborah discovers the benefits and possibilities of changing up her acting.
Ava gets to meet with other Deborahs inner circle, including her manager, Marcus, who struggles to balance his work on Deborah''s business dealings and his own personal life; her daughter DJ, who desperately struggles to find her own thing to be passionate about; and Marty, the casino owner, who is making the decision to terminate Deborah''s residency.
Ava also has her own issues. After a tweet went wrong, she still has feelings for her ex-girlfriend, and her dad is dealing with health problems.
As Deborah prepares for her last residency appearance, she prepares to debut the new act she and Ava have developed. Ava declares that the television show is a "hack" and that she is resigning from her home country to be with her devastated father.
Deborah attends her funeral for herself while she contemplates them, but it struck down. However, she believed there were pieces that worked, and she wanted to keep developing it with Ava. After settling down, Ava is reminded of one thing as the season ends in her displeasure. She sent a lot of information about Deborah to television producers.
