The Famous in Love series premiere opens on Paige Townsen on a private plane. The stewardess asks for her autograph.
One year earlier, Paige talks to her roommates Cassie Perkins and Jake Sugar. Cassie convinces her to join her in auditioning for a movie called Locked that’s sure to be a blockbuster.
At the audition, the male lead in the film, Rainer Devon, sees Paige out the window. He’s clearly immediately smitten with her.
Later, Nina Devon, Rainer’s mother and the producer of the film, enters a restaurant. She meets with a gossip journalist named Barrett Hopper and tells her to stop giving Rainer negative press. She grabs him balls and threatens him to get him to stop.
Paige is at the laundromat with Cassie when she gets a call. She finds out that she got a callback.
Alexis Glenn sits at a pool when Rainer visits her. When she offers him a drink, he reminds her that they went through rehab together.
Paige tells Cassie and Jake about the callback. She’s worried that Cassie will be mad at her, but she seems happy for her. Jake suggests they open a bottle of champagne.
The next morning, Jake asks Paige if she got any sleep before the big day. She says that Cassie kept her up, but that she’s glad she’s happy for her.
Paige auditions at her callback. She’s very nervous, but she has great chemistry with Rainer. During their scene, her nerves seem to go away and she pulls it off.
In what is not just the best moment of the Famous in Love series premiere but without hyperbole the funniest thing I’ve ever seen on television, Paige walks through the studio lot and sees Chad Lowe. She is jaw-dropping lay starstruck. You know, like everyone is when they see Chad Lowe.
Paige is attending Jake’s play when she finds out that she got the part. She invites Jake and Cassie to a party to celebrate.
At the end of the episode, Paige, Jake and Cassie arrive at the party. The club is surrounded by paparazzi. Paige starts off nervous, but smiles big as she enters the club.
