The New Adventures of Old Christine stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a comedy about a divorced working mom who's juggling the daily stresses of motherhood, work and dating, while maintaining a positive relationship with her ex-husband, which is easier when his pretty new girlfriend isn't around to complicate the picture.

Christine Campbell has a busy life - after all, she's prone to taking NyQuil to get to sleep and leaving voicemail messages to herself in the middle of the night.

She co-owns a women's 30-minute workout gym with her best friend, Barb (Wanda Sykes), and manages to send her 13-year-old son, Ritchie (Trevor Gagnon), to a posh private school, where she endures endless encounters with two snooty, condescending stay-at-home moms, Marly (Tricia O'Kelley) and Lindsay (Alex Kapp Horner).

Her inexperienced therapist brother, Matthew (Hamish Linklater), helps Christine care for Ritchie and serves as her emotional rock.

Christine gets along with her ex-husband, Richard (Clark Gregg), even better than when they were married, but since Richard's been in relationship with "New Christine" (Emily Rutherfurd) - making her the "Old Christine" - she feels the pressure to take that same leap.
