Don’t have the time, money, or patience to raise kids? Why not pool your resources? After two busy Los Angeles couples decide to join forces in raising a baby together, Sam Friedlander’s fresh and sunny comedy takes many hilarious twists and turns. First is the planning. Then the sometimes messy business of conception. Then, well…. This smart and topical premise is fuel for up-to-the-minute social commentary kept bubbling by an appealingly game multicultural cast: Danny Pudi (Community), Emily C. Chang (The Vampire Diaries), Maiara Walsh (Desperate Housewives), and Eddie Alfano (Criminal Minds).
"Friedlander brings uncomfortable humor, along with genuine pathos, unexpected depth and surprising compassion, to the topic" - The Mercury News
"Combining the DNA of She’s Having a Baby and Indecent Proposal, Friedlander’s audacious hook is sure to spur thought-provoking discussions about its progressive parenting ideas… [The cast members] build a delightful array of depth and dimension into their characters’ motivations… Thoroughly entertaining." - Courtney Howard, Variety
