(from ABC's press release) Every kid thinks about it and some dream it's really true, but no one expects to wake up one day and find out they're actually adopted – especially when they're 30. Well that's what Lloyd Leaf learned this morning... from a card attached to roses his birth mother sent. A semi-successful author of historical biographies that neither his mother nor brother have read, Lloyd really should have figured this out by now. He's way smarter while they're thinner and better looking. He's romantically challenged while his brother sleeps with a new girl every day. Mom never told him about this little adoption thing because, well, she never wanted what's happening now. Lloyd is trying to blend his two families, but repressed WASP adopted mom Sarah wants nothing to do with his Jewish biological earth mother, Judy. It's a battle of nature vs. nurture with the big winner being Lloyd, who finally has a few answers to his own nagging doubts. Created by improv actors Jim Rash (RENO 911!) and Nat Faxon (The Groundlings), this wacky collection of neuroses adds up to a comedy that puts the "me" in family.
