TV show description:
This couples comedy revolves around two diverse couples who are best friends and neighbors. It is loosely based on the life of series creator DJ Nash.
Mitch (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) is a college ethics professor who’s obsessively trying to change the world around him for the better.
He’s a white man with a Filipino wife and an African American best friend and he’ll challenge anybody for being politically incorrect. However, it’s often Mitch’s own assumptions that get him into trouble. Mitch’s wife is Tracy (Vanessa Lachey), a feared lawyer by day but a loving mom to their daughter Sadie by night.
Mitch’s best friend and voice of reason is Russell (Tone Bell). He lives next door and works as a stand up comic. Russell has few inhibitions which can lead to dramatic public scenes when he’s trying to make a point. His new wife is Angie (Bresha Webb) and she needs to work hard to keep him in check. Strong and spirited, she is more than his match.
Seemingly no topic is off limits for the group. Race, religion, politics, body parts and even ex partners are discussed openly.
Episode #10 — The Wedding
When Mitch is asked to officiate the wedding of friends Derek (guest Terrence Jenkins) and Charlene (guest Letoya Luckett), Russell is sent into a tailspin because he was the one who introduced the couple.
When a piece of juicy gossip threatens to break-off the wedding, Tracy sees her first child-free weekend away at risk of being derailed by Mitch’s obsession with running the perfect event.
Meanwhile, as Russell maneuvers to get a bigger role in the wedding, he finds out that his wife Angie thinks he already hogged up too much of the spotlight at their own wedding.
First aired: December 25, 2015.
