TV show description:
Lee Standish (Ben Koldyke) is a quick-witted and likable family man. His best friend is Angel Ortiz (Amaury Nolasco), a hotheaded ladies’ man with a mouth that has no filter. They both used to work at Pontiac — Lee as a top salesman and Angel as head mechanic — until the company went out of business. They’ve both been out of work for a year, benefits are running out, and their job prospects are slim.
Lee, who’s almost broke, discovers that Coreco Pharmaceuticals is looking to hire sales reps — only they want female sales reps. Feeling like he has no other choice, Lee takes a chance and goes into the interview disguised as a woman — and get the job. He and Angel had a deal that, if one of them got a job, he’d help the other. Lee tells Angel what he’s done and Angel ends up getting hired in drag as well, after he volunteers to fix the bosses’ car.
To keep their new jobs, Lee and Angel put aside their macho pride and must learn to navigate their all-female workplace. They work with single mom Kristin (Kirstin Eggers), who used to be the office newbie and is both enthusiastic and naive; Kelly (Kate Reinders), the office party girl; and Grace (Rebecca Mader), the icy regional sales leader who’s convinced there’s something wrong with the new hires. Vanessa (Rochelle Aytes) is their tough but fair boss, and the apple of Angel’s eye.
Not that keeping their secret at work isn’t tough enough but Lee can’t share his feminine secret with his wife Connie (Beth Lacke) or their 14-year-old daughter, Kat (Hannah Sullivan). He tells them that he got a job at the drug company as himself. Connie notices that Lee begins to be more understanding and sensitive to her needs. Connie’s unemployed brother, Brian (John Carapulo), can’t understand why his drinking buddies won’t help him get a job as well.
