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.
Episode #36 — Reverse the Curse
On their way to a fancy dinner, Maggie and Emma get into trouble in the best way possible. Some new and old friends come to their rescue.
First aired: July 14, 2017.
