DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) Conventional wisdom tells us one thing, but the way we choose to live our lives may not necessarily be in line with what the world expects. And that's ok. Our Thirties is a comedy that explores a group of friends who are doing what just about everyone else is doing these days...swimming a little bit against the tide of the expectations from the generation that came before us. Take, for example the couple that has just gotten divorced. They were the perfect couple with the perfect marriage, and now that they have split they are determined to support each other in the perfect divorce, cheering each other on as each of them returns to the dating pool. Or, how about the divorcee who is engaged to a closeted major league baseball player and is simply enjoying all the fame and attention? Or the couple that has just come to the realization that they don't have to get married despite the pressure they're feeling from family and friends? All of these relationships will be tested when the 11-year-old son one of them never knew he had shows up, adding an unexpected wrinkle to life's journey. A co-executive producer of Just Shoot Me tackles the new opportunities today's world offers thirty-somethings. Because no matter who you are or what you've become, you can be happy if you choose to be.
