Ambitions is a provocative drama series that revolves around the lives of two powerful women, Stephanie Lancaster (Robin Givens) and Amara Hughes (Essence Atkins), who are at the top of their game in the city of Atlanta. Stephanie Lancaster is a wealthy and successful lawyer who has built her career from scratch. She is a hard-nosed and ambitious woman who plays the game well in both her personal and professional life. Stephanie has a loving husband and a son, but her ambition often gets in the way of her relationships. Despite her success, she is always on the lookout for more power and influence.

On the other hand, we have Amara Hughes, a beautiful and intelligent woman who is also a successful lawyer. She is also the wife of a prominent Atlanta mayor, Titus Hughes (Kendrick Cross). Amara moved to Atlanta after marrying Titus and has since become a key player in the city's political and social scene. She is often at odds with Stephanie, partly due to their shared ambition and the fact that they are both lawyers with different approaches to law.

The show also features some key supporting characters, including Stephanie's husband, Greg Peters (Gino Anthony Pesi), who is a successful attorney in his own right, and Evan Lancaster (Brian White), Stephanie's wayward son who is struggling to find his footing in life. There's also Bella (Erica Page), a young and ambitious woman who is trying to make it big in the music industry, and Rondell Lancaster (Brely Evans), Stephanie's sister who is running her own restaurant and is always at odds with Stephanie over their family's legacy.

Throughout the show, viewers get to see a lot of drama, intrigue, and betrayal as these characters all try to achieve their ambitions at any cost. There are power struggles between Stephanie and Amara, as well as between Stephanie and Greg. There are also secrets and scandals that threaten to tear families and marriages apart, and characters who are forced to make tough choices in order to get ahead.

What sets this show apart is its focus on strong, complex characters who are not afraid to go after what they want, even if it means taking risks or crossing lines. Stephanie and Amara in particular are fascinating to watch, as they both represent different sides of the legal profession and are both willing to fight tooth and nail to get ahead.

One of the things that is also great about the show is the Atlanta setting, which is always buzzing with activity and provides a great backdrop for the characters' struggles. The show also tackles some important social issues, such as racism, sexism, and homophobia, which adds another layer of depth to the storylines.

Overall, Ambitions is a great drama series that offers a lot of twists and turns, as well as strong performances from its lead actors. Fans of shows like Scandal and Empire are sure to enjoy the show's mix of politics, ambition, and high stakes drama.

Ambitions is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (26 episodes). The series first aired on June 18, 2019.
