TV show description:
Melanie Moretti (Valerie Bertinelli) is a novelist and mother of college-age kids who’s trying to get over her recent divorce. Joy Scroggs (Jane Leeves) is a Beverly Hills beautician and is known as the “Eyebrow Queen of Hollywood,” helping stars like Oprah Winfrey and Ryan Seacrest. Her life starts to fall apart when she realizes she’s losing her clients to younger talents. Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) is an aging actress whose soap opera has recently been cancelled and is now being asked to audition for roles like Megan Fox’s grandmother.
The three middle-age best friends are on their way to a dream vacation in Paris. Melanie hopes to find love there and check another item off their “bucket list.” The plane has to make an emergency landing in Cleveland and the three find there’s a lot to like there — men find them attractive, the cost of living is much lower, and it’s not centered around being young and skinny like Los Angeles.
They ultimately decide to stay and make a new life there. They rent a house that happens to come with a very feisty and acerbic caretaker named Elka Ostrovsky (Betty White).
