Synopsis Anna Faris and Emmy? and Oscar? winner* Allison Janney star in this hilarious and sometimes heart-wrenching comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory). After years of questionable choices, Christy (Faris) is trying to get her life on track, although she¡¯s tested daily by her mother, Bonnie (Janney). Together, mother and daughter work to overcome their mistakes and build a better future for their family. Christy¡¯s dreams are coming true at last as she begins her first year of law school, while Bonnie attempts to have a healthy relationship with her fianc¨¦, Adam (William Fichtner). Through it all, Christy and Bonnie rely on their support system from AA, including the wise Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy), the wealthy and sometimes misguided Jill (Jaime Pressly) and the overly emotional Wendy (Beth Hall). Collectively, they help each other stay sober in the face of whatever life throws at them.
Christy has second thoughts about law school after a tough first day, and Bonnie is plagued by an upsetting dream. When Christy decides she doesn’t need Gambler’s Anonymous anymore, Bonnie vehemently disagrees. Christy’s demanding law professor leans on her a little too hard for support, and Bonnie’s plan to trick Adam into choosing a wedding venue backfires. Christy is certain that Bonnie is in over her head when she invites a freshly paroled Tammy to stay with them. When Marjorie’s husband passes away, the ladies accompany her on a trip to memorialize him. Christy and Jill clash over a gambling debt, and Bonnie’s new hobby troubles Adam.
