Sydney is the producer behind Ashley Monahan’s weekend news show. She becomes a good friend and confidant while Ashley is living alone in New York City. Fiercely loyal, witty and energetic, Syd is one of the few highpoints for Ashley in the Big Apple. Together, the pair take on the daunting task of keeping Ashley’s ratings high, while still promoting calm despite constant reasons to panic.
Sydney is young enough to remain idealistic, but has been in broadcasting long enough to know how cutthroat it can be. She brings experience and optimism to Ashley’s team, to balance Ashley’s enthusiasm and naivete. She and Ashley mesh well together and build a team that others at the network might consider misfits. They consider each other an extended work family.
