TV show description:
A comedy, this TV show revolves around a family of ne’er-do-wells who must band together to keep their heads above water when their father and breadwinner passes away which leaves them with a mountain of debt.
The Engels must all go to work running Dad’s storefront law firm, with one minor problem — daughter Jenna Engel (Kacey Rohl) is the only one of them who’s qualified to practice law. The youngest sibling and “the good one,” becomes the unlikely family patriarch, running the law firm and keeping her crazy family together. Unfortunately for Jenna, this also means taking on her eccentric relatives as co-workers.
Ceil (Andrea Martin) is the clan’s self-absorbed and overly dramatic (but also fiercely protective) mother works as the firm’s paralegal. A former pill-popper who has never worked a day in her life, Sandy (Azura Skye) is the receptionist and first line of defense at the firm. The firm’s investigator is Jimmy (Ben Arthur), a petty criminal and bad boy who is utterly devoted to his family.
Episode #12 — Family Therapy
Jenna is being courted by other law firms, while Jimmy reverts back to his bad boy ways leading the family to seek counseling from a celebrity therapist.
First aired: TBD
