(from ABC's press release, March 2015) Three long-term couples celebrate the 16th anniversary of Ramy and Kiri, the couple with the seemingly perfect marriage of the group. At the beginning of the evening they are all part of the 46 Percenters - the percentage of Americans who are staying married. By the end of the night, however, things have changed. To Robert (Ian Gomez) and Judy, Ramy and Kiri's lives seem so much easier and better than their own. It's a little crazy at their house with three children and two full time jobs. Robert and Judy juggle their calendars trying to get to soccer games, dental appointments, teachers meetings, and still make time for each other. They do it all pretty well, except for the time for each other part, which is why Robert has to book an "appointment" in Judy's calendar to M.L. - make love. The other couple is Jay (Malcolm Barrett) and Marni (Angela Kinsey, The Office ). They met in 10th grade and have been soulmates ever since. They are the couple that always want to sit next to each other at dinner parties, have to be on each other's team on game night, the couple that still has sex twice a week. Jay recently left his job so they could start a business together. But, working in their tiny office and being together 24/7 is creating some problems. Marni adores Jay, but working in such tight quarters has made her hyper-aware of his quirks like the way he drinks water from a bottle like a hamster. Jay is surprised to realize that some of her behavior is beginning to annoy him as well, like when she sings the wrong lyrics to songs everyone knows. Or when she redoes whatever he's just done: Marni has a habit of going back and relocking the office door right after Jay has locked it. As the couples toast to the 46 percent of Americans who stay married, Ramy and Kiri surprise everyone and announce that they are going their separate ways. They explain that it is the little things that have driven them apart: her humming, his nose breathing, and the fact that they have to schedule time for sex. The other couples panic. If Ramy and Kiri, the perfect couple, are splitting up, what chance do they have of staying together? Worried Robert tries to sweep Judy back off her feet with a romantic night in a fancy hotel. Self conscious about her body, Judy invites the kids to Robert's dismay. Jay and Marni have heart to heart talks and tell each other about all the little things that get on their nerves. Not the best idea. And Ramy and Kiri find out that being single is not as carefree as they thought. Here's to everyone who wants to be part of the 46 Percenters! An unromantic romantic comedy about the relatable ups and downs of marriage, family, and relationships. From writers Sherry Bilsing-Graham (Friends; New Adventures of Old Christine) and Ellen Kreamer (Friends; New Adventures of Old Christine), who will executive produce.
