About the Show

Half & Half is an American sitcom created by Jeffrey Klarik and set in San Francisco, about the lives of fictional half-sisters who have only one thing in common: their father.

Growing up separately, these two virtual strangers suddenly become neighbours in the same apartment building and experience the challenges of sisterhood for the first time.

Mona Thorne (Rachel True), a budding music executive, was raised by her single mother, Phyllis (Telma Hopkins), to be an independent woman who does things in her own free-spirited and sometimes sardonic way.

By contrast, younger sister Dee Dee Thorne (Essence Atkins) is a privileged honour-roll college student who grew up in a two-parent home, but searches for her own identity out of the shadow of her overbearing mother, Big Dee Dee (Valarie Pettiford).

Now in their twenties, these two vastly contrasting women are discovering the advantages and joys that the special bond of sisterhood offers.

But their relationship is not without its problems, as they often clash on everything from morals to money to men.

Meanwhile, Spencer (Chico Benymon), Mona's best friend, becomes the conscience of the group and helps build a bridge between the women.

Yvette Lee Bowser (A Different World, Living Single and For Your Love) serves as executive producer.

Jeffrey Klarik (Mad About You) created the series, which is produced by Sister Lee Productions, Inc., in association with Eye Productions Inc.
