The series stars “Best Friends Forever” duo Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham as Maggie Caruso and Emma Crawford. The two childhood friends team up to raise Caruso’s baby, after Caruso discovers that her husband has been having an online affair with a muscular German woman.

Meanwhile, Crawford must confront the past that she abruptly left behind thirteen years ago — her first love and local cop Mark (played by Keegan-Michael Key), her prim-and-proper mother (“Malcolm in the Middle” alum Jane Kaczmarek) and a small town that she’s never felt comfortable in.
