This is the story of five unforgettable women. A hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
Sheree, played by Karen Carroll, the spunky team captain who desperately tries to maintain her organized and perfect life and continues to be the group leader.
Dinah, played by Dale Baldwin, the wisecracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life.
Lexie, played by Suzanne Hively, pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married – over and over and over again.
The self-deprecating Vernadette, played by Dianne Rowe, is acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, has decided to give in and embrace the chaos.
And sweet, eager-to-please Jeri Neal, played by Kelly French, experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise.
As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of “teamwork”, rally ’round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a surprising direction.
