The narrative follows ambitious Korean-American lawyer Ingrid Yun, who is pushing to make partner at a high flying New York firm. But when you're often the only woman in the room, and you're also East Asian, breaking through requires working twice as hard.

Read on for a full rundown of the major players in Partner Track.

Who is Ingrid Yun? A young, ambitious lawyer who has the brains and the tenacity to make partner at a top US law firm – but the competition is fierce, and often underhand.

"She's not the typical shy, submissive Asian girl that people might expect," Cho told The Hollywood Reporter. "She's quite bold. I think a lot of women in these cutthroat [corporate] worlds try to hide their feminine sides to earn respect, but if Ingrid wants to wear pink, she'll wear pink."

Ingrid also finds herself swept up in a love triangle, which provides plenty of drama.

Where have I seen Arden Cho before? Cho is best known for her role in Teen Wolf. More recently, she has appeared in US medical drama Chicago Med.

Dominic Sherwood plays Jeff Murphy

Alexandra Turshen plays Rachel Friedman
