About the show
Four unique Southern women, all needing to escape their daily routines are drawn together at an impromptu happy hour – and decide it’s time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Over the course of months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Together, they discover a renewed determination to live in the moment – and realize it’s never too late to make new old friends.
So raise your glass to these strong Southern women and their fierce embrace of life and say “Cheers!” to this joyful and surprisingly touching comedy!
