Comedy

"Better with You" is a comedy about three different couples, intertwined in one family, at various stages in their romantic relationships. There's a couple, Maddie and Ben, in a happy, long-term relationship and not married. Another couple, Mia and Casey, in a brand-new relationship and unexpectedly motivated to make a rush to the altar. Last but not least, there's a long-time married couple, Vicky and Joel, who've been together for 35 years but may have a new take on life. Maddie and Ben have a strong relationship, but they will come to learn that there may be value in Mia and Casey's impulsiveness and spontaneity. And both sisters could surely learn something about relationships from their long-married parents. With three very different relationships, is it free thinkers vs. over-thinkers, or will each couple begin to see things a little bit differently? "Better with You" stars JoAnna Garcia as Mia, Jennifer Finnigan as Maddie, Josh Cooke as Ben, Jake Lacey as Casey, with Kurt Fuller as Joel and Debra Jo Rupp as Vicky. The series is created by Shana Goldberg-Meehan and executive-produced by Goldberg-Meehan and Greg Malins. The show is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Silver and Gold Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
