CBS, Scoop, MOM
"Pilot" - Christy, a newly sober single mother, is trying to get her life together. She is challenged when her estranged mother, Bonnie, comes back into the picture, on a rebroadcast of the series premiere of MOM, on a special night and time, Saturday, Sept. 28 (8:30-9:01 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. (Originally broadcast 9/23/13.)
MOM is a comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre starring Anna Faris as Christy, a waitress at a posh Napa Valley establishment who is four months clean and doing her best to be a good mom and overcome a history of questionable choices. Her sobriety is tested when her recovering alcoholic mom, Bonnie, played by Emmy Award winner Allison Janney, reappears chock-full of passive-aggressive insights into Christy's many mistakes. Bonnie joins Christy's already complicated circle of relationships: her handsome, married boss - and lover - Gabriel; the restaurant's hot-tempered chef, Rudy; her pretty, 16-going-on-25-year-old daughter, Violet; her sweet but overly honest son, Roscoe; her irresponsible ex and Roscoe's father, Baxter; and Violet's clueless boyfriend, Luke. Christy tries to remain positive as she pursues her new path in life, but she faces an uphill battle, surrounded by a dubious support system - and a copious amount of dysfunction.
