DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, April 2011) Meet Jo Hauser, a loveable train wreck of a bartender, living the party life in New York City. Jo (Jordana Spiro) spends her time chasing men and dodging responsibility, but now responsibility is about to show up at her door. Jo Hauser is, quite frankly, a mess - a loveable mess, but a mess nonetheless. Her therapist dumps her because her idea of a breakthrough is deciding to get a boob job, and her latest one-night stand leaves her stranded in her hallway outside her own front door. Luckily, she has friend and apartment manager Raj (Waleed Zuaiter) and bar coworkers Rosie (Diana Maria Riva) and Frank (Josh Casaubon) in her life. But now she's about to have one more person added into the mix: Leo (Gary Clayton), the son she gave up for adoption eighteen years ago. He's the complete opposite of Jo, sheltered and conservative, and he's looking for the mother he never knew. At first Jo freaks out and pretends she's not herself, but eventually she comes clean. Or rather, Rosie accidentally makes her come clean. Jo's spent her whole life dodging responsibility, after all; she can't be expected to change overnight. But with Leo in her life, it looks like growing up and facing her responsibilities may not be so bad. Neither of them is what the other expected in their lives, but they just might be exactly what they both need. In Lost and Found, actress and writer Marisa Coughlan (Boston Legal, Bones) creates a wonderful story full of flawed but lovable characters that prove that family really is what you make it.
