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

Trivia

Jessica St. Clair was diagnosed with stage 2b estrogen positive breast cancer in September 2015 after finding a marble-sized lump in her breast. St. Clair subsequently underwent a mastectomy before then undergoing 16 rounds of chemotherapy which wrapped in April 2016. St. Clair goes onto detail the various "chemo hacks" she used to reduce the side effects, and to help hide the illness from her 2-year-old daughter, with help from her husband, playwright and poet Dan O'Brien, and her Playing House co-creator, co-star and "comedy wife" Lennon Parham. In the midst of her 12 weeks of radiation, St. Clair and Parham returned to work on the upcoming third season of USA Network's Playing House, in which St. Clair's character Emma will also battle breast cancer and the exact treatment St. Clair underwent.

Like a modern Lucy & Ethel...but they are both Lucy!
30 June 2016 | by dr_mckeeverSee all my reviews

It's hard to tell which one is crazier, but who cares... Since their previous show, "Best Friends Forever," was canceled they are back again. These two are just too funny to get rid of. The creators, writers and stars, Jessica & Lennon, use a mix of script and improv to bring you a LOL funny couple of best friends. Which is what they are in real life. I thought "Best Friends Forever" was a great show, but with Keenen Micheal Keyes as a co-star, this one is even better!!!

The banter between these characters will have you rolling on the floor! Just wait 'til you see Lennon's alter-ego "Beaucephus!" You will laugh so hard you won't be able to breathe. Be sure to DVR the show so you can go back and watch the bits you miss because you were laughing so hard.
