Dirt is a drama television series that aired on FX from 2007 to 2008. It stars Courteney Cox as a ruthless tabloid editor named Lucy Spiller. The show follows Lucy and her team of reporters as they chase down sensational stories about celebrities and their scandals.

Lucy is the editor-in-chief of Dirt Now, a tabloid magazine that is known for breaking the biggest stories in Hollywood. She is dedicated to her job and will stop at nothing to get the story, even if it means crossing ethical lines. Her team of reporters includes Don Konkey, played by Ian Hart, who is struggling with addiction and trying to find his way back to sobriety. There is also Willa McPherson, played by Alexandra Breckenridge, who is eager to prove herself as a journalist and move up the ranks at Dirt Now.

Through Lucy and her team, the show explores the seedy underbelly of Hollywood and the lengths that people will go to protect their image. We see extravagant parties, secret affairs, and even murders. The show also touches on the negative effects of fame and the toll it takes on those in the public eye.

As the show progresses, we see Lucy become increasingly ruthless in her quest for the perfect story. She is willing to betray anyone, including her friends, to get what she wants. However, we also see glimpses of her vulnerability and the toll that her job takes on her personal life.

Dirt also features a number of guest stars, including Jennifer Aniston, Joss Stone, and Rosanna Arquette. These celebrities play exaggerated versions of themselves, adding to the show's satirical tone and blurring the lines between reality and fiction.

Overall, Dirt is a slick and edgy drama that explores the darker side of Hollywood. It is filled with intrigue, scandal, and high-stakes drama that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Courteney Cox's intense and nuanced performance as Lucy Spiller is a standout, and the show's exploration of the tabloid industry and celebrity culture is both fascinating and thought-provoking.

Despite its critical acclaim, Dirt was cancelled after two seasons due to low ratings. However, it remains a cult favorite among fans of gritty, character-driven dramas.

Dirt is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (40 episodes). The series first aired on January 2, 2007.
