Forget who gets to keep the ring - when a couple splits, the real question is, who gets to keep the friends?
In this modern comedy, a couple's break-up will complicate all of their friends' lives and make everyone question their choices.
When life throws you for a curve, hold on tight to the people you love. Every circle of friends has someone who's the gravitational centre. For years, perfect couple Dave and Alex drew their friends in and held them together.
Now that they've split, does this group have the stuff to stay together? Or do Max, Brad, Jane and Penny have to choose sides? Suddenly every event is a negotiation... like, who gets to go on the annual ski trip?
There are a lot of big questions to be answered, but this group has been together so long, somehow, little by little, they'll figure out how to hold on, even though their centre is split up.
It helps that Dave and Alex have agreed to stay friends. But there will definitely be other complications down the road. This show isn't afraid to ask the embarrassing personal questions that inevitably arise in every long-term, close-knit group of friends.
