Desperately searching for your next tv-binge? Something that will make you want to cancel your plans, whip out the popcorn, and curl up in front of the tv with no concept of time? Well, new Netflix series, Partner Track, is set to do just that! Described as a crossbreed between Suits and Sex and The City, the release is pegged to be the next 'it' show - the one you can't go anywhere without it being discussed. So, get ahead of the game and avoid the FOMO by clearing your schedules now. Here's everything you can expect...

Based on the 2013 novel of the same name, Partner Track tells the story of Ingrid Yun, a young first-generation Korean American female lawyer. While she focuses intensely on her journey to becoming a partner at her New York City law firm, she faces all types of issues, from racism to workplace romance. As the book's synopsis reads, the story is about "a woman of color learning to navigate the alien culture at a powerful global law firm. It's about chasing ambition while attempting to live authentically at work and remaining true to ourselves and our values."

"With the support of her friends, she battles through workplace challenges to break through the glass ceiling on her path to becoming partner. But will her drive and ambition leave room for love?" the synopsis teased. The trailer released last week more than lived up to the hype - promising all the sexy relationship drama, comedic moments, and boss-lady lawyers we could want. Simply put - fans of the book will surely be pleased with this screen adaptation. 

Another stand-out feature of the trailer is, of course, the cast. Ingrid Yun is played by Arden Cho, who leads a star-studded group of talented actors. This includes Bradley Gibson (Powerbook III: Ghost), Alexandra Turshen (Ray Donovan), Nolan Gerard Funk (The Flight Attendant), Dominic Sherwood (Penny Dreadful: The City Of Angels), Rob Heaps (Good Girls), and Matthew Rauch (Terminal List). Does Partner Track sound like everything you've been looking for in a show? August 26, the first ten episodes are all yours...
