There is a new show coming to CMT that I think you will love. I was able to see a sneak peak of the first episode and have to say that it made me giggle and smile several times. As far as I am concerned, that is the sign of a good show! It is called Working Class and includes some great actors/actresses including Melissa Peterman and Ed Asner (who is seriously funny in this show).
Here is what Working Class is all about:
WORKING CLASS focuses on Carli Mitchell (Melissa Peterman), a single mom from a rough and tumble background, trying to give her 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.
The premiere episode, called “The Buddy System” airs on January 28 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT.
Be sure to check it out and let me know what you think!
