Storyline

Mary Elizabeth, an outgoing white girl, and Rene, a shy black girl, become close friends as they grow up in 1960s Alabama. Their friendship comes to an end, however, when Mary Elizabeth gets pregnant and Rene doesn't support her decision to keep the child and marry her boyfriend. Twenty years later, Mary Elizabeth is still living in Alabama with her husband as they struggle to make ends meet. Rene is a successful attorney working in Washington. After the death of her father, Rene moves back to her old hometown, where she meets Mary Elizabeth again. As the pair resume their old friendship, they reminisce on old times and the events that occurred after parting ways. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

User Reviews

I love this show .
9 July 2001 | by eqla3See all my reviews

I really love this show it's funny, heart warming & good enough to watch . Annie Potts is a stunning actress & a talented comedian as well as Lorriane Toussaint. The little girls are very good performers reflecting life in the 60's . There are many shows about close girlfriends like "The Golden Girls " & "Kate & Allie " but Any Day Now is the best.
