What Is The Plot Of Palm Royale?

The series follows Maxine Simmons (played by Kristen Wiig), who after being divorced by her husband and ditched by her friends, reinvents herself to break into Palm Beach’s exclusive high society enclave.

The series’ official synopsis reads, “as Maxine attempts to cross that impenetrable line between the haves and the have-nots, Palm Royale asks the same question that still baffles us today: How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice in order to get what someone else has?”
