May 15, 2013 by Marisa Roffman
Chuck Lorre is hoping to bring his television magic to a fourth CBS series: this time around, it’s MOM, a new sitcom starring Anna Faris and Allison Janney.
Take a look at photos from the pilot, the official show description, and the trailer!
"Pilot" -- CBSÃ¢ÂÂs new comedy MOM stars Anna Faris as Christy, a newly sober single mom raising two children in a world full of temptations and pitfalls. ChristyÃ¢ÂÂs complicated circle of relationships includes her irresponsible ex-husband, Baxter (Matt Jones, center), who is her sonÃ¢ÂÂs father Ã¢ÂÂ and ChristyÃ¢ÂÂs daughterÃ¢ÂÂs clueless boyfriend, Luke (Spencer Daniels). MOM will premiere this Fall, Mondays (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Photo: Monty Brinton/CBS ÃÂ© 2013 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
CBS’ take: “MOM is a comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre starring Anna Faris as a newly sober single mom raising two children in a world full of temptations and pitfalls, and multiple Emmy Award winner Allison Janney as her critical, estranged mother. Christy (Faris) is a waitress at a posh Napa Valley establishment who is four months clean and doing her best to be a good mom and overcome a history of questionable choices. Her sobriety is tested when Bonnie (Janney), her recovering alcoholic mom, reappears chock-full of passive-aggressive insights into Christy’s many mistakes. Bonnie joins Christy’s already complicated circle of relationships: her handsome, married boss – and lover – Gabriel (Nate Corddry); the restaurant’s hot-tempered chef, Rudy (French Stewart); her pretty, 16-going-on-25-year-old daughter, Violet (Sadie Calvano); her sweet but overly honest son, Roscoe (Blake Garrett Rosenthal); her irresponsible ex-husband and Roscoe’s father, Baxter (Matt Jones); and Violet’s clueless boyfriend, Luke (Spencer Daniels). Christy tries to remain positive as she pursues her new path in life, but she faces an uphill battle, surrounded by a dubious support system – and a copious amount of dysfunction. Chuck Lorre and Eddie Gorodetsky (“Two and a Half Men” and “The Big Bang Theory”) are executive producers for Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Pamela Fryman directed the pilot. Gemma Baker co-wrote the pilot with Lorre and Gorodetsky.”
