Season 1

Whitney is an American sitcom created by and starring Whitney Cummings and based on her real-life experience and comedy routines in which she portrays a fictionalised version of herself and her very supportive live-in boyfriend, Alex, as she begins to fear what she sees as relationship boredom.

The series is a look at modern day love, which centres around Whitney (Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Lately) and Alex (Chris D'Elia, Glory Daze), a happily unmarried couple. Together for three years, the duo is in no rush to get hitched, which seems to get a mixed response from their friends.

Whitney's close circle of girlfriends includes, on one side, Lily (Zoe Lister-Jones, The Other Guys), a romantic idealist who loves being in love, and on the other, Roxanne (Rhea Seehorn, The Starter Wife), a recent divorcee who is practical, cynical and dreading being single again.

Lily and Roxanne's opposing points of view only exacerbate Whitney's own complicated outlook on relationships.

Completing their close-knit group is Neal (Maulik Pancholy, 30 Rock), a real modern day Renaissance man - sensitive and cool, who knows a little bit about everything and happens to be dating Lily.

On the other end of the spectrum is Whitney and Alex's next-door neighbour Mark (Dan O'Brien, How I Met Your Mother), a police officer and total bachelor, who claims to be the ultimate player, but likes to talk a good game.

At the end of the day, Whitney and Alex realise that while their relationship might not be perfect on paper, they really do love each other - and that works for them.

Whitney is produced by Universal Media Studios and Scott Stuber Productions. Stuber (The Break Up), Quan Phung, Betsy Thomas (My Boys) and Barry Katz (Last Comic Standing) are executive producers. Cummings also serves as executive producer/writer.

Andy Ackerman (Seinfeld, The New Adventures of Old Christine) is an executive producer and directed the pilot.
