DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, April 2013) There's a difference between what society says you need to be happy and actually being happy. Securing a job, finding a husband and having a baby-these are the "boxes" women feel pressured to check off in order to feel like they matter. Abby (June Raphael) has a job. Check. She's this close to getting married to a good-on-paper guy. Check. And yet, something's not quiet right. Her job at a publishing company isn't fulfilling and her completely unspontaneous fiancé Scott is solid and dependable but he's not exactly blowing her skirt up. Abby is not alone in her search for love and fulfillment: her pals Paige (Kristin Schaal) and Rebecca are also trying to find their way. Naíve Paige is desperate for a man to complete her and goes to hilarious extremes to land one. Rebecca, an up-for-anything-party-girl, has been playing the field too but it becomes more like a minefield with her uncanny talent for saying the wrong things to the wrong people. Before any more time is wasted, Abby's going to start unchecking some boxes: quit the job and quit the man. However, getting out of these two situations is going to be more complicated than she imagined. Now she's turning to the only thing in her life that she's truly positive about: her friendship with her two besties. These three charming and dysfunctional women might not yet have what they want but together they'll learn about life and love in the most hilarious ways. Written by Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky (THE OFFICE) and from executive producers Sharon Horgan, Dennis Kelly, and Aaron Kaplan (THE NEIGHBORS) based on the hit BBC show, comes a comedy about three singles living life by their own rules: PULLING.
