This week I had the opportunity to preview CMT’s first scripted sitcom, Working Class, starring TV veteran Melissa Peterman (you may remember her from the hit show "Reba") along with Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Ed Asner. I was excited about the opportunity since I have loved Ed Asner since the Mary Tyler Show.
So here is what the show is about:
"The new 12 episode, multi-camera series follows Carli Mitchell (Melissa Peterman), a single mom from a rough and tumble background, trying to give her three kids a better life by moving them to an upscale suburb. She quickly finds that making the transition to “the good life” is harder than she thought. She's unwittingly befriended by her cranky neighbor, Hank (Ed Asner), her only “career” prospect is a glorified deli job at the local grocery store, and the man she falls for not only already has a girlfriend – but he’s also her boss, Rob (Patrick Fabian). With her ladies-man brother, Nick (Steve Kazee), to help her out (when he’s not acting like one of the kids himself), Carli faces the challenges of parenting, dating, and making friends in her new community by doing more with less, staying true to herself and approaching each day with a touch of working class."
I found the show to be funny and wanting to see more. It is nice to just see a regular family show about just trying to survive.
