A satire of the 2008 financial meltdown in New York, Debt follows Lillian Fitzgerald, who takes an SAT tutoring position to help chip away at her $100,000 in student loan debt and discovers that pretty much everyone is in someone else's debt.

Pompeo will executive-produce the drama, which does not yet have a writer.
