DESCRIPTION:

Trying to save face, Maddie chooses to spend her nights living with other recovering addicts at a rehab facility, and her days pretending everything is perfectly normal among her high school classmates and her closest friends. The pilot was written by Bert V. Royal ("Easy A") and Karen DiConcetto ("Ruby & The Rockits").
