The “tragically privileged” son of Conrad (Henry Czerny) and Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe), Daniel Grayson is a handsome, Harvard Business School-educated young man destined to fill his father’s shoes at Grayson Global. But it hasn’t always been smooth-sailing for this fine fella: Back when Danny was a party boy who drank “epically,” he ran his car into a tree after one too many. He was lucky enough to walk away from the wreck, but the same can’t be said for the cocktail waitress he was with. His parents spent a lot of money keeping him out of jail.
He develops an undeniable attraction to Emily (Emily VanCamp) , making him a pawn in her play for revenge.
