Plot Synopsis

This one-hour dramedy explores the unique bonds of male friendship among three men experiencing the changes and challenges of mid-life. They have been best friends since college but now, in their 40s, are navigating through the second act of their lives. Joe is a friendly, slightly neurotic, recently separated father of two who had dreams of being a professional golfer. Now he owns and runs a party store. Terry is a laid-back, handsome actor who seems to breeze through life. Lately, he's spending more time working as a temp than as an actor. And Owen is an overstressed husband and father of three who endures constant criticism from his father, for whom he works as a car salesman. These friends face very different challenges. Joe, who currently lives in a hotel, tries to connect with his kids and is dipping his toe in the dating pool, while also struggling with the gambling problem that may have ended his marriage. The unmarried Terry scoffs at domestic issues but sometimes wonders if his own single life is all it's cracked up to be. Owen does everything he can to climb the sales board at his father's car dealership and keep his cool over the seemingly endless renovation project in the home he can barely afford. Through it all, these men are there for each other when it counts.
