Among the series’ pickups for ABC’s Fall 2010 lineup is a new half-hour comedy called Better Together. The show to join Modern Family, The Middle and Cougar Town on Wednesday night.
Better Together follows two sisters whose attitude toward life and love are very different. Among the cast is Joanna Garcia of Reba and Privileged, who plays the younger, more free-spirited sister Mia. Debra Jo Rupp (Kitty Forman from That '70's Show) plays Mia and her sister Maddie's mother. Below is ABC’s full description for the series, which should give you a pretty good idea of what this show’s all about. Further down are a couple of clips.
Better Together - 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 are getting married and having a baby, it's news that completely 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 type of attitude, much like Mia's, mostly due to getting older and losing 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 versus over-thinkers, or will each couple begin to see things a little bit differently?
