Sneak Peek: Better Together

Slow news day. It's coz 1) I'm currently under the weather and I hate being sick; 2) it's the holidays in America, the press is taking a break and 3) Summer season officially starts after the holiday, so all we're getting are replays and wrap ups for now, and that's not really interesting.

Anyway, what may be interesting is this upcoming comedy series that a few other TV sites say may strike it well this Fall. It's called Better Together. And it stars the lovely Joanna Garcia and some other people you may recognize (like Debra Jo, from That 70's Show....I'm too sick to Google the rest!)

What's interesting to me is that this series was written by Shana Goldberg-Meehan. If the name looks familiar to you, it's probably because you see it during the opening credits on Friends, where she was producer for several seasons.

The show's description from ABC:

Maddie and Ben have been dating for nine years. They know each other inside and out, a relationship marked by contentment and affection, seeing their commitment to one another as a “valid life choice,” something they proclaim often — and often loudly. Maddie’s younger sister, Mia, has been dating Casey for seven weeks. With a shared c’est la vie attitude, Mia and Casey are smitten with each other, and thrilled to explore the oh-so-many things they don’t know about each other yet. But when they announce they’re getting married and having a baby, it’s news that throws Maddie for a loop.

Surprisingly, the girls’ parents, Vicky and Joel, couldn’t be more pleased. Married 35 years, they have recently adopted a carpe diem sort of philosophy, rather like Mia’s, maybe because they’re getting older and lost a good portion of their savings when the economy tanked. With three very different relationships tightly intertwined in one family, will it be free thinkers vs. over-thinkers, or will each couple begin to see things a little bit differently?

Here's a sneak peek to her new series:

It has potential, huh?
