Lady Hollywood is the tale of one woman's fight to survive the tough realm of gangsters, corruption and the seedy world of Los Angeles. Set in modern-day LA, private detective, Kate Holloway, runs a Hollywood Detective Agency with her business partner, tough Vietnam veteran, Randy Whalen Jr. and is mixed up in the honey trap side of the business Whalen is introduced to a big pay day - only it comes with a lot of heat. 'Big time pictures' movie producer, Max Schlesinger, has a wife who has had enough of his seedy little life and is now looking for her own pay day. Mrs. Schlesinger seeks the help of Kate and Whalen to provide evidence she needs to unlock a prenup money box which contains a few million dollars. Unknown to Kate and Whalen, Max has already got himself into some major gambling debits with Las Vegas' notorious Mob Boss, Sonny G. Although, everything is not what it seems - a mysterious new player has came into LA. He has his own agenda and his own sinister intentions marked out for Kate, specifically.
