“Roast Chicken and a Funny Story”: When a heartbroken Bonnie drives everyone crazy, Christy begs Adam to take her back. Anna Faris and Emmy Award winner Allison Janney star in this often heart-wrenching comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre (“The Big Bang Theory,” “Two and a Half Men,” “Mike & Molly”).
Christy is a single mom who, after years of questionable choices, is now sober and trying to get her life on track. She’s tested daily by her mother, Bonnie, who Christy still considers the root of her troubles, even though she has also gotten sober. Now mother and daughter are working to overcome their mistakes and build a better future for their family.
Christy has gone back to school and is pursuing her dream of becoming a lawyer, while Bonnie attempts to have a healthy romantic relationship and figure out what she wants to be when she grows up. Through all this, Christy and Bonnie rely on their support system from AA, including wise Marjorie, the wealthy and sometimes misguided Jill and the overly emotional Wendy. Together, they help each other stay sober and face whatever life throws at them.
