STATUS: previously in development (2013-2014 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, April 2013) Welcome to the glamorous world of Eastmore's department store - second only to Bergdorf Goodman and third only to Neiman Marcus in quality and style. This is a place where you can get everything from Tom Ford Cologne, to a Gucci iPad cover, to diamante studded Christening spoons - served by staff who are there for the glamour, for the job security, but mostly for the employee discount. Tobias Eastmore Sr. may run an upscale store, but his employees are definitely rough around the edges. At the helm of the luxury goods department is the fiercely ambitious but equally lazy Eve (Sharon Horgan), who believes that getting ahead is 10% perspiration and 90% making sure her boss sees the 10% perspiration. Eve heads a team that includes her best friend Linda (Rachael Harris), a spray-tan addicted, divorced mother of three; Ramon, gay and vain, who's only creative outlet is adding flair to his promotional displays, and Mrs. Paulin, a slightly obsessive store detective. Eve's easy life as head of luxury goods (promoted at the tender age of 38!) is suddenly threatened when the boss's son, Tobias Eastmore, Jr. (David Spade), is brought in to head up electronics. The overly confident Tobias, (with an impressive resume of failed dot-com businesses behind him) wants to revamp Eastmore's image by bringing "sexy back" and his first order of business is hiring a super-smart, but mostly super-hot clerk, Melanie, who has an eye for Eve's job. Now, Eve - in order to stay on top - will have to summon up all of her human resources to step up her game (and her life) to make her department of misfits worthy of the luxury goods name. Starring Sharon Horgan and written in collaboration with Holly Walsh. Executive produced by Kat Likkel & John Hoberg (My NAME IS EARL, THE NEIGHBORS), and Aaron Kaplan (THE NEIGHBORS) comes an ensemble workplace comedy about an unlikely team that forms a family despite the: BAD MANAGEMENT.
