Plot Synopsis

SOUTHIE RULES is a half-hour reality series that follows the Niedzwieckis, a multi-generational family of townies living in a three-level house in an iconic working-class area of South Boston, as they embrace their own way of life and local traditions while battling yuppies who are invading their turf. To yuppies, jumping in the frigid harbor on New Year's Day, housing three generations of a family under one roof, or never moving from the home you were born in may seem ridiculous, but the Niedzwieckis find Starbucks and sushi restaurants just as absurd. In the Niedzwieckis' triple-decker home, all three floors are connected, with each floor claimed by a different wing of the family. On the top floor, Camille, the family's matriarch, and her ex-husband, Walter, still sleep in the same bed, making their relationship tricky -- he still loves her even though she's out dating and looking for a new man. Down the hall, their youngest son, Matt, lives with his girlfriend, Jenn, and their one-year-old daughter, Liana. Matt works at the family tattoo shop, but would rather let his baby mama dictate what he does, while burying himself in video games to avoid any drama. Meanwhile, Jenn is working hard at their relationship, especially since they've broken up like a million times since they first got together at age 15. On the middle floor, their oldest son, Jon, was recently relegated to the smallest room in the house because Matt became a new father. Outside the home, Jon manages the family's tattoo shop, and, almost immediately after he divorced his wife of nine months, he began dating Jessy, a hair-dresser from the suburbs, who often tries to hard to fit in with the family. Just feet away from where Jon sleeps, Matt's jobless friend, Devin, crashes on the family's couch most nights. On the ground floor, 39-year-old daughter Leah lives with her husband, Jarod, and their toddler, two-year-old Abby. Leah, a former probation officer and current stay-at-home mother, survived cancer, married a much younger man, and had a daughter, but now she's the glue that holds this family together.
