University of Maryland President Dr Wallace Loh stated that the athletic department is so important to the image of a college that it is "The Front Porch" of the institution. FROM THE FRONT PORCH will follow how Connie Woo is hired and takes control of the athletic department at her Ivy League alma mater as the college admissions scandal results in many being canned. The first in her family to go to college thanks to her immigrant parents working tirelessly at their convenience store to send their children to the best schools, she must deal with sexism, ageism, opiod addiction, racism, TItle IX, doctor molesting athletes, coach have sex with player, date rape, suicide, mental health and depression, among other issues on campus and in the sports departments for the student-athletes. Oh, and she must also make the school a sports powerhouse while maintaining its Ivy standing in academics. Inspired by the 2018 hiring of Vicky Chun as the first female Asian American athletic director at Yale and Operation Varsity Blues, the FBI investigation into corrupt university admissions.
