Synopsis

Led by business-savvy matriarch Bobette Buffkin (Laurie Metcalf), Prestige Payday Loans is a thriving quick-cash company in the Southwest.

But trouble soon comes from thuggish new competitors, and it's up to middle son Morgan (Jeff Hephner) to quash any tension.

Morgan, though, is having some tension of his own. Having always felt out of place in the Buffkin household, Morgan investigates a childhood secret with the help of beautiful grad student Julia Miller (Marsha Thomason), much to Bobette's chagrin.

Morgan has always been Prestige's "heavy," running down ne'er-do-wells and gambling addicts, but he's ashamed to admit that fact to Julia.

It doesn't help that Morgan's older, but less mature, brother Cooper (Jay Ferguson) knocks heads with corrupt local Detective Yapp (Chris Browning) who, in turn, blackmails Morgan.

If Morgan can find a way to fend off the local yokels and unlock the secrets of his past, he just might be able to spend more time with Julia and find a better life for himself.

Katie Lowes, Nick Searcy, Judge Reinhold, Joe Peracchio, Gary Farmer, Peter Navy Tuiasosopo, and Kimberly Estrada also star.

Alik Sakharov directed the pilot episode, which was written by executive producers Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider.
