Set in a timeless Anytown, USA, "Strangers with Candy" deals with topics very close to everyone who has suffered through freshman year in high school, only this time they are told through the eyes of an extremely unique freshman, 46 year-old Jerri Blank (Amy Sedaris). Jerri faces the hassles of high school with a new moral crisis, introduced in every episode, brought to a comically tidy, but twisted, resolution by show's end.

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.
