The wealthy town of Westport, Conn., is full of cookie-cutter mommies and their seemingly perfect offspring, but the members of the Otto family can't be counted among them. Confident housewife Katie Otto shares a home with her husband, Jeff, and their three children Taylor, Harrison and Anna-Kat, and while she loves them all dearly, she recognizes they probably aren't going to land themselves in a magazine spread anytime soon. The matriarch knows her family is beautifully flawed, and she's far from sorry.
Every workplace is a family. But for Katie, a producer at cable news network MMN, it goes one step further when her mom, Carol, is hired as an intern. That's just scratching the surface of this slightly offbeat team, which includes old-school newsman Chuck and hip millennial Portia, the two co-anchors who only get along when the cameras are rolling. Then there's Greg, the young, ambitious but uptight executive producer, and Justin, the laid-back video editor and voice of reason for this oddball crew. Together, they may be a little dysfunctional, but that won't stop them from doing what they do best: breaking the news.
An oddball family of employees at supersized megastore Cloud 9 tackles the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions. Stalwart employee Amy is just trying to hold it all together despite the best efforts of her daftly clueless manager Glen and his iron-fisted assistant Dina. Rounding out the crew is new hire Jonah, a dreamy dreamer, sardonic Garrett, ambitious Mateo and sweet young mother-to-be Cheyenne. From bright-eyed newbies to seen-it-all veterans, bumbling seasonal hires and in-it-for-life managers, they're all going to get through another day -- together.
New Yorker Jill Weber is fighting a battle within herself -- embrace her quirky and unconventional life with husband Andy and their three kids or give in to the temptations and perks afforded to her by Andy's wealthy, blue-blooded family. Increasing the pressure on Jill to conform are status-obsessed mother-in-law Candace and brother-in-law Lex, along with his wife, Brooke, who reigns over a group of Upper East Side mothers who aren't afraid to whip out their credit cards to buy whatever they want. Jill tries to stay true to herself while giving in to temptations, using the Weber family legacy to do things like interview for a family plot at a prestigious cemetery. As she deals with her hormonal tweenage daughter, Jill struggles with her desires to feel young and relevant. The series stars author Jill Kargman as Weber, a satirical version of herself.
Told from the perspective of an unseen documentary filmmaker, the series offers an honest, often-hilarious perspective of family life.

But a daughter who is trying to grow up too fast, another who is too smart for her own good, and a rambunctious young son make it challenging. Claire's dad, Jay, and his Latina wife, Gloria, are raising two sons together, but people sometimes believe Jay to be Gloria's father. Jay's gay son, Mitchell, and his partner, Cameron, have adopted a little Asian girl, completing one big -- straight, gay, multicultural, traditional -- happy family.
