Season 1

What’s the tv show about?
Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim (Sandra Oh) takes over as head of the English department at the renowned Pembroke University. As the first woman to hold this position and one of the few non-white members of the university’s staff, she is under particular pressure. But even so, her new job presents enough challenges, as the university struggles not only with dwindling enrollment and budget shortfalls, but also with issues surrounding sexism and racism. And at the center of the latest scandal is, of all things, Ji-Yoon’s colleague and good friend Bill (Jay Duplass), who made the Hitler salute in class. In the midst of these chaotic conditions, even the tough Ji-Yoon doesn’t always find it easy to keep a cool head.
