"Grounded in Seattle" produced by ReelTime Partners /TurnLeft Productions (OTCPK:RLTR) www.reeltime.com / www.turnleftproductions.com and Baristas Coffee Company takes and unprecedented and brutally honest look into the lives behind the scenes of girls from a variety of backgrounds who work in the Baristas stands. Competition between the girls is fierce and the money and attention is undeniable for those who can rise to and stay on top but the lifestyle can disappear in a matter of a few bad shifts or a newcomer beating them out of their positions. Despite the rivalries and caddy malfeasance they must put all aside when working or making appearances as one of the coveted "Baristas" Baristas but the pressure proves too hard for many who crack or turn to drugs and alcohol to try to cope and alas a shiny new Barista takes their place. How long can the top Baristas in the country "Payton" stay on top? If not then who will take her crown? Can "Tori" the badass new superstar and 2014 calendar cover girl keep it together before the fast pace lifestyle burns out her candle? Who will trade it all in for a normal life and a new baby? And of course which of any of the newest aspiring Baristas will take their places or get flushed out before they even get started?
