Set against the backdrop of the high-pressure world of advertising, Trust Me focuses on Mason and Conner, a pair of ad men whose strong creative partnership has served the firm of Rothman Greene & Mohr extremely well over the years. Mason is an art director and a responsible, workaholic family man with a beautiful wife Erin, two children and an undying loyalty to the brands he helps sell. By contrast, his writing partner Conner is a single, impulsive copywriter with the attention span of a teenager. Their yin-yang relationship is put to the test when Mason is named a creative director of the agency, making him Conner's boss. The series follows the changing dynamics between the two friends, who are better together than they are apart. Also working in the same creative group is new hire Sarah Krajicek-Hunter, an award-winning copywriter whose forceful personality has a tendency to rub people the wrong way. Hector and Tom are a junior creative team with nontraditional ideas that don't always sit well with their new boss. The entire team is supervised by Tony Mink, a man who lives and dies by the advertising business but has a growing sense his days in this young person's business may be numbered. Trust Me follows these memorable characters as they try to navigate the waters of inter-office politics, personality conflicts, easily bruised egos, professional jealousies and unreasonable client demands.

Howard Holloway (Clark Gregg) is a former child star who is now a down and struggling agent who specializes in representing child actors. Howard has an ongoing feud with more successful agent Aldo Stankas (Sam Rockwell), who has poached several of Howard's clients who were on the verge of success. After losing a client, Howard encounters Lydia (Saxon Sharbino), a highly talented thirteen-year-old actress, who takes a liking to him. Her crude father, Ray, has the opposite reaction and orders Howard to keep away from his daughter. Howard arranges a date with his neighbor Marcy (Amanda Peet). Soon after, Lydia receives an offer to audition for the lead role in a forthcoming big budget series of films based on a popular series of young adult vampire novels. Lydia tells the producers that Howard is her agent and he negotiates a lucrative deal for her. Later, Lydia stands by Howard when her father and the producers attempt to dump him in favor of Aldo. While rehearsing lines with Lydia before the audition, Howard is shocked by her angry reaction when he attempts to touch her arm. Later he goes to the hotel room she shares with her father to deliver some contracts and sees Lydia sitting on the bed sobbing, while Ray takes a shower. Howard comes to the horrifying conclusion that Ray is sexually abusing Lydia. Howard talks the situation over with Marcy who knows a lawyer specializing in family law. Howard worries that an attempt to remove Lydia from her father will be unsuccessful and will result in the scuttling of the film deal, thus losing her the money she would need to gain her independence. Howard ultimately decides to try and save Lydia and hires a lawyer to petition for her emancipation. Ray objects, but Howard accuses him of molesting Lydia. Ray denies the accusation, saying that Lydia was abused by a former agent while she was in her mother's custody. However, Ray agrees to allow the emancipation in order to avoid charges of molestation. The day of the press conference to announce the movie's cast, Howard discovers that Lydia has gone from his apartment, where she had been staying. Heading to the conference at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Howard discovers Lydia, now dressed in a highly sexualized fashion and with Aldo as her new manager. She explains that she needed to be rid of her father, whose drunken behavior had cost her a previous role. She implies that she lied about her father and confirms Ray's story about her being abused by a former agent. Howard tells her that he doesn't know what to believe anymore. As they enter the theater, Ray tries to break through the security cordon. While struggling with the guards he grabs one of their guns, inadvertently shooting Howard. Lydia and Marcy cradle him as he lays dying and Howard imagines himself sprouting wings and taking flight like one of the characters in the movie.
