Premiering April 29th at 10/9c, PLAYING HOUSE is a single-camera buddy comedy about what happens when two best friends come back together just when they need each other the most. Childhood best friends Maggie Caruso (Lennon Parham, "Best Friends Forever") and Emma Crawford (Jessica St. Clair, "Best Friends Forever") have shared countless adventures growing up together in the charming town of Pinebrook, Conn. Now, Maggie and Emma are in store for one of their biggest adventures -- raising a baby. When Maggie discovers that her husband Bruce (Brad Morris, "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World"), is having an online affair with a muscular German woman, Emma gives up her burgeoning business career in China to stay in their hometown and help Maggie raise her baby. Now, as Maggie prepares for the birth of her first child and deals with the fallout of her marriage ending, Emma must confront the past that she abruptly left behind thirteen years ago: her first love and local cop, Mark (Keegan-Michael Key, "Key and Peele"), her prim-and-proper mother (Jane Kaczmarek, "Malcolm in the Middle") and a small town that she's never felt comfortable in. Despite their differences - Emma is brash, bold, and assertive while Maggie is grounded, rational, and safe. The women complement each other the way only best friends can, by facing the challenges of their past, present and future--together.

In addition to St. Clair and Parham, PLAYING HOUSE is executive produced by Scot Armstrong ("Old School," "Hangover 2") of American Work, Judah Miller ("American Dad") and Ravi Nandan ("Best Friends Forever"). The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions.
