Families and Relationships. Those are two things that everyone can relate to, and laugh at.
From how it feels for your younger sister to get married first, to finally telling your mother-in-law to stop with all the crazy "cat playing piano" e-mails, our show finds the heart and the humour in all kinds of relationships.
Better with You is about three couples, all in the same family, who are at different stages in life and in love. Everyone fights in relationships, but a new couple's first fight can be a lot different than a fight 35 years in.
And you never know which will be less mature.
We've always loved comedies that make you say "I've been there" and laugh at yourself a little, too. Through the couples in the Putney family, Better with You lets you do just that.
Check it out, have a laugh, then e-mail your mother-in-law about it.
