The "Combine Two Show Titles to Make a New One" Game

This board has been sorely lacking in fun timewaster games lately. So here's one: a twist on the old "combine two movie titles and get a new one" game. You combine two show titles in your head and then describe the show that would be produced. The next person must correctly guess the "combo" title and then create their own. For instance, if I said:

"A young, affluent Jewish boy forms a special bond with a black troubadour as the two make their way through heady Europe"

you would answer:

"Caroline Or Passing Strange"

and then make up your own.

So let's start with a fun one:
"A young man whose soon-to-be father-in-law is a hardcore conservative politician must disguise his two gay fathers, one of whom is devoutly religious and one of whom is a militant atheist."

Hello Carrie.

Edit: I got one. A famous theatre actress falls for an old flame who is a sleazy traveling salesman using the think system.
"If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it." -Stephen Colbert
