Trivia

Niecy Nash originally auditioned for the role of Dawn, but reading the script she was more interested on Didi, and asked to audition for that role. There was an initial resistance from the producers, but they finally let her do it and loved her so much that they cast her for Didi. See more »

I Was Not Expecting To Laugh
4 June 2019 | by carter-42764See all my reviews

I never heard of the show and decided to give it a try. Hideously hilarious . I was not expecting to literally laugh out loud -Given such a pasty and drab setting. Alex, Niecy, and Laurie have a great chemistry. Omg and the patients lmao. The connections amongst these characters transition from ep to ep.

Looking forward to season 4
