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.

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

I Love the show "Playing House"
17 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Hi. I love this show!! Let's make sure we have another season!! :) And can we have more than eight (8) episodes each season? The seasons are very short. Everyone on the show is so funny! Emma and Maggie are hilarious. Little Charlotte is so cute! Oh, and both Emma and Maggie have boyfriends now! MmmmHmmm...!! Cannot wait to see where this goes! Please take it someplace good.

Thanks, La
