TV show description:
A comedy, this series revolves around childhood best friends Maggie Caruso (Lennon Parham) and Emma Crawford (Jessica St. Clair). They’ve shared countless adventures growing up together in the charming town of Pinebrook, CT. Now, they’re about to have one of their biggest adventures — raising a baby.

When Maggie discovers that her husband Bruce (Brad Morris) is having an online affair (with a muscular German woman), Emma gives up her burgeoning business career in China to stay in their hometown and help Maggie raise her baby.

Meanwhile, as Maggie prepares for the birth of her first child and the fallout of her marriage ending, Emma must confront the past that she abruptly left behind thirteen years ago. Her first love and local cop Mark Rodriguez (Keegan-Michael Key), her perfectly coiffed and extremely opinionated mother Gwen Crawford (Jane Kaczmarek), and a small town that she’s never felt comfortable in.

Zach Harper (Zach Woods) is Maggie’s sweet, quirky, and good-hearted younger brother. They’re close (bonded by the untimely death of their parents many years ago) and his affable nature and naïveté leads him down some questionable paths.

Despite their differences — Emma is brash, bold, and assertive while Maggie is grounded, rational, and safe — the women complement each other the way only best friends can. They face the challenges of their past, present and future together.

Let me add my voice to the chorus by saying, no begging the powers that be to not cancel this show. It sweet and funny and does depict the friendships of women. Especially childhood friendships and first loves. So please renew this sweet and funny show.

There is NO reason for USA to be taking this long to renew this show. Lennon and Jessica have created winning characters, wonderful backstories, and they (and their fans!) have earned a 2nd season.
And a 3rd.
Get on it, USA Network.

I agree. Not only is it ridiculous for the fans, but it’s also ridiculous for the cast – how do they know whether or not they can commit to other projects with USA dragging its heels to renew? It’s the most maddening thing ever…..!!!! So mad!!! Renew Already!!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE this show! I needed something else to watch during the summer while I ran on the treadmill and I was blown away by this show. The characters, the jokes, all of the creative Ideas I just loved. I’ve watched the season a couple of times already so PLEASE renew this ASAP!!

Please, Please, PLEASE!!! Don’t cancel this show! I have watched every episode and I love it! I need more of Maggie and Emma! :D

I have watched every episode multiple times and can’t wait for more. Please keep this show on the air for many more seasons. I don’t understand why so many shows don’t get the accolades they deserve and are then canceled before they have had a chance to draw a following.

I agree. After seeing the promos, i thought this show was going to be silly but started watching and was so pleasantly surprised. Every episode was hilarious! Hope this show is on for a long time!
