TV show description:
This sitcom revolves around six young friends who live in Chicago. Their group is put in jeopardy when the couple that brought them together, Alex and Dave, break up. Luckily, the former couple are able to (awkwardly) stay friends.

It looked like everything was going to be happily ever after for Dave Rose (Zachary Knighton) and Alex Moore (Elisha Cuthbert). They were the perfect couple and then, at the alter, Alex realized that she couldn’t follow through with the ceremony and left Dave standing alone, stunned.

Dave is still trying to figure out his life after his break up with Alex and occasionally needles her about it. After they split up, he moved in with one of his best friends, Max, and later quit his office job to run his own steak sandwich food truck. Alex still has some guilt about jilting Dave and runs her own downtown clothing boutique called Xela (that’s Alex spelled backwards).

Jane Williams (Eliza Coupe) is Alex’s control-freak older sister. She’s married to Brad, is more than a little competitive, and likes to be in charge. Brad Williams (Damon Wayans, Jr.) works for an investment firm and usually ends up doing what his wife wants, though he’s not always crazy about it. Dave introduced the couple to each other while they were still in college.

Max Blum (Adam Pally) has been best friends with Dave and Brad since college. He’s openly gay but it took him a long time to come out to his parents. He’s sarcastic, lazy, and, when not officiating at nondenominational weddings, often unemployed. He technically wasn’t licensed when he married Brad and Jane.

Penny Hartz (Casey Wilson) briefly dated Max in college, before she realized that he was gay. Since then, he’s been her “gay BFF.” Full of energy, she’s often worried that she’ll never find the right guy. Penny works at a public relations firm and prides herself on being nice and the best dressed person in the office.


Series Finale

Episode #57 — Brothas & Sisters
Jane is tasked with planning the perfect wedding for her older sister, Brooke (guest Stephanie March). Her African American fiance, Elliott (guest James Lesure), is having a great time with the Kerkovichs while Brad feels like he’s the Jackie Robinson of the family, like he paved the way for Elliott.

Dave and Alex get locked in their own bathroom (again) and have a big talk about relationships. They realize that they never really allowed themselves enough time to have other relationships after their first breakup. So essentially, they were each other’s rebound from each other. They break up (again) and want to keep it a secret. They tell Max and Penny — who tell Alex’s gossipy family — and then everything gets out of hand.
First aired: May 3, 2013
