Official release from FX:
The second season of Dirt, starring Courteney Cox, will premiere on FX
Sunday, March 2, 2008 at 10 PM ET/PT.
Ian Hart, Josh Stewart and Alexandra Breckenridge also return as series regulars. Guest stars include Julian Acosta, Tom Arnold, Laura Allen, Ryan Eggold, Rick Fox, Ashley Johnson, Richard Karn, Sharon Lawrence, Will McCormack, Larry Miller, Jeffrey Nordling, Pablo Schreiber
and Kevin Wheatley. Rosanna Arquette is a special guest star in episode 6.
Dirt, a dramatic satire of celebrity culture, reveals the life of Lucy Spiller (Courteney Cox), the stalwart,
unrelenting editor-in-chief of the celebrity tabloid magazine Dirt Now. With an uncanny sixth sense for the
truth and an infallible instinct for cover-ups, Lucy exposes the secrets and lies of the famous and the infamous
through her magazine with rancorous accuracy. Thanks largely to exclusive, revealing pictures of reigning
celebrities captured by ardent photographer Don Konkey (Ian Hart), Dirt Now exhibits show business imagemaking
to reveal the often-repugnant truth behind ambition, fame and yearning.
The second season of Dirt continues where the first season left off: Lucy lays bleeding and unconscious after
a brutal, in-home attack at the hands of actress Julia Mallory (Laura Allen), whose career was destroyed by
Don Konkey struggles to overcome his schizophrenia through medication as he is shattered by
Lucy’s assault. Holt McLaren (Josh Stewart), no longer living with Julia, ascends to A-list stardom. Willow
McPherson (Alexandra Breckenridge) has ended her affair with Dirt Now publisher Brent Barrow
(Jeffrey Nordling) and is no longer the naïve, neophyte reporter on Lucy’s staff.
