TV show description:
This comedy series revolves around Carol Kenney (Heaton) who has embarked on a unique second act after raising her children, getting divorced, and retiring from teaching. She pursues her dream of becoming a doctor.
On Carol’s first day at work at Loyola Memorial Hospital, she’s prepped with an abundance of life experience, people skills, talent, and enthusiasm — advantages that her co-workers don’t immediately appreciate.
Carol’s first-year partners on rounds are Dr. Lexie Gilani (Jalees), who’s very nervous due to the pressure of her being the first in her family to go to college; Dr. Daniel Kutcher (Bilodeau), a 2018 Harvard Medical School grad who’s already been twice-published in the New England Journal of Medicine; and insecure Dr. Caleb Sommers (Neff). Their chief resident is Dr. Maya Jacobs (Aghayere), an all-business disciplinarian who doesn’t particularly care for Carol’s outgoing nature.
Fortunately, Carol has a couple of friendly faces at the hospital. Dr. Stephen Frost (MacLachlan) is the accomplished senior attending physician and finds her charming. Carol’s bubbly daughter, Jenny (Tisdale), is a successful pharma sales rep who catches the eye of Carol’s fellow doctors.
