This Chicago-set sitcom follows the intertwined lives of six young urbanites trying to learn the ropes of adulthood. Through breakups and whatever other curve-balls life throws them, the pals stick together.
Teenager Travis may live in Florida's leisurely Cougar Town, it's not easy being the son of his divorced parents: over-protective Jules and lazybones Bobby. Jules obsessively draws attention, wins sympathy and 'benignly' bosses everyone around. That includes her real estate office deputy Laurie, neighbor Ellie- who rules her devoted Cuban husband Andy Torres with iron hand- and in various modes hunky new neighbor and barman Grayson, all forming a quarrelsome gang.

In May 2010, the series' creator Bill Lawrence announced that he was considering changing the series' title. Among the titles considered were "Friends & Family", "Friends & Neighbors", "Neighborhood Jules", "The Cul de Sac", "The End of the Street", "The Neighborhood" and "Neighborhooding". He almost settled on "Sunshine State," but decided against it when it was discovered that Matthew Perry's upcoming series would be named "Mr. Sunshine."

I cant say anything bad about this show. Its like they have worked together forever. Being able to see Busy Phillips in HD on a weekly basis ain't to shabby either but she also earns her comedy chops along side Courtney Cox who is HIGHlarious. Its like Monica Geller, divorced and on the prowl. Im not mad at that. And Christa Miller entertains on any show she is on. It seems as if every person playing on it and everyone behind the scenes working on this show fits perfectly within it. From the jokes to the actors and actresses to the writers directors camera guys editors anybody that works on the show works well in the best oiled sitcom machine since My Name is Earl. Watch it and be entertained.
