Created by Sedaris ("Sex and the City," "Late Show with David Letterman"), Stephen Colbert ("The Colbert Report"), Paul Dinello (Second City Improv) and Mitch Rouse ("The Secret Lives of Men") and starring Sedaris, Colbert and Dinello, the series follows the misadventures of the misunderstood Jerri Blank. Returning home after 32 years as a teenage runaway, the well-intentioned Jerri picks up her life exactly where she left it: living at home and subsequently flunking her freshman year in high school.
