TV show description: This comedy series stars author and fashionista Jill Kargman as a version of herself who’s navigating the treacherous and elite ecosystem of New York’s Upper East Side — and the uber-wealthy mommy clique that inhabits this outrageous place.
A New Yorker through and through, Jill Weber (Kargman) embraces her quirky and somewhat unconventional life. She has a loving husband named Andy (Andy Buckley), three great kids, and a best friend who shares the same love for donuts and snarky retorts, Vanessa Wrigley (KK Glick).
However, the posh and decadent world of Andy’s classically blue-blooded family slowly takes over as Jill valiantly tries to resist all the delicious temptations and perks that their wealth can afford.
From accepting her in-laws’ aristocratic (and perhaps cloudy) legacy, to interviewing for a family burial plot at the most prestigious cemetery, Jill constantly battles staying true to herself while weighing the benefits of fitting in.
Jill’s frenemies and in-laws only fuel the pressure for her to conform. They include the status-obsessed Weber family matriarch, Candace (Joanna Cassidy); brother-in-law Lex (Sean Kleier) and his wife, Brooke (Abby Elliott). The latter reigns over a group of quintessential Upper East Side “mombots” with an iron credit card.
