TV show description:
Four working guys carpool each day and, while they commiserate about their lives, become friends.
Gracen Booker (Fred Goss) is the unofficial leader of group and is a professional mediator. He thinks that he’s a problem solver but, more often than not, he’s the cause. At home, his real estate “flipper” wife, Leila (Faith Ford), earns more money than he does and Gracen’s adult son, Marmaduke (T.J. Miller), spends his whole day in his boxers.
Dentist Laird Holcomb (Jerry O’Connell) is Gracen’s playboy neighbor and best friend. In the middle of a divorce, Laird thinks life is an unending quest for women and taunts his carmates about his sexual freedom.
Aubrey (Jerry Minor) is a sweet guy with seven children and a wife that sits in her recliner all day at home. The daily carpool ride has become the only peaceful time in Laird’s life and believes in the brotherhood of the carpool almost to a fault.
Newlywed Dougie (Tim Peper) tries to gain acceptance into the group but frequently violates the unspoken carpooler codes. He and his wife, Cindy (Allison Munn), are the perfect modern couple, but as you get to know them, you start to see their cracks.
