Storyline

Childhood best friends Maggie Caruso (Lennon Parham, "Best Friends Forever") and Emma Crawford (Jessica St. Clair, "Best Friends Forever") have shared countless adventures growing up together in the charming town of Pinebrook, CT. Now, Maggie and Emma are in store for one of their biggest adventures-raising a baby. When Maggie discovers that her husband is having an online affair with a muscular German woman, Emma gives up her burgeoning business career in China to stay in their hometown and help Maggie raise her baby. Meanwhile, as Maggie prepares for the birth of her first child and the fallout of her marriage ending, Emma must confront the past that she abruptly left behind thirteen years ago -- her first love and local cop Mark, her prim-and-proper mother and a small town that she's never felt comfortable in. Despite their differences - Emma is brash, bold, and assertive while Maggie is grounded, rational, and safe - the women complement each other the way only best friends can, ... Written by anonymous

My New Favorite Show
21 May 2014 | by Oneinamillionx3See all my reviews

I spent the first few weeks scoffing at the commercial promos for this show with no intention of ever watching it. However I was already watching a program on USA and didn't feel like changing the channel when the show premiered. I decided to give it a glance and couldn't be happier. It made me actually laugh out loud whilst in my room with nothing but my laptop and a half-eaten turkey & cheese sandwich in front of me, causing my sleeping mother some agitation. But this show couldn't have been more worth. I've already given amazing words to all of my friends, converting some of them with me. I now know at least 7 friends who have watched this show like clockwork every week and I'm sure it will continue. This upbeat and quick comedy is fresh and new, something we haven't seen in a while and I'm very excited for more!!!
