Series is based on what Maria has accepted to be "her life." The occasionally surreal episodes, refracted across multiple periods of the actor/comedian's life, tell the story of a woman who loses - and then finds - herself.
I loved this show but it was given zero chance. It ran a couple of times and that was it. There were great characters and interlocking plots kind of like Sienfeld. The main character was a comedy writer, but the focus was on his dealings with his parents and brother. His brother was a dentist, his mother was sweat and clueless seaming, but actually very smart. Jeffrey Tambor was great as the father. Similar to his role on Arrested Development, but not a criminal. If you ever get a chance to see it, it will make you depressed at the state of television today, where great comedies are given no chance to find an audience, but star driven shows with no wit or style get all the attention and dollars and air time. Please somebody put it on YouTube!
