The relationship between a mother and a daughter can be a complicated one, and Chuck Lorre and Eddie Gorodetsky seem to be making comedic use out of that dynamic with Mom, a comedy which has Anna Faris and Allison Janney playing one of the two mother-daughter relationships showcased in this new series, which is fittingly set to air immediately after the female-skewed comedy 2 Broke Girls on Monday nights.
Substance abuse - or rather, sobriety - plays a role in this family story, as hinted in the preview above and further elaborated in the description below.
My appreciation for Allison Janney and Anna Faris conflicts with my general lack of appreciation for Chuck Lorre comedies (Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang theory). Though, by the ratings of those shows, I'm clearly in the minority. Anyway, Mom looks like it could be funny, so I'll definitely give it a chance when it debuts this fall. Also among the cast is Matt Jones, who's set to appear in The Office finale this Thursday, and is also well known for playing Badger in Breaking Bad. Sadie Calvano (J. Edgar) plays Faris' daughter, and French Stewart plays the boss at the restaurant. So, quite a few familiar faces here.
