As a teenager, Pizza Hut was the only place that felt like home to Dakota. When the Hut hires Zoe, a straight-A suburban Christian virgin with Ivy League dreams, Dakota doesn’t think she'll like the bougie newbie much. But after a few shifts, Zoe proves her worth and endears herself to Dakota, who falls for her. Too bad her fellow cook Nick feels the same way.
Amidst the romantic shenanigans, the crew wonders: will General Manager Liz ever leave the back office and, um, do her job? Is Assistant Manager Jaylynn ever going to acknowledge her obvious baby bump? Will driver Billy finally end his infinite engagement, marry his fiance, and move out of her parents’ garage?
Pizza Hut Heartbreaker is the story of co-workers, who become friends, who function a lot like family, exploring along the way how we end up in the lives we may or may not have chosen--and who gets to decide how much those lives mean.
