Season 1

Mom is a comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre starring Anna Faris as a newly sober single mom raising two children in a world full of temptations and pitfalls, and multiple Emmy Award winner Allison Janney as her critical, estranged mother.

Christy (Faris) is a waitress at a posh Napa Valley establishment who is four months clean and doing her best to be a good mom and overcome a history of questionable choices.

Her sobriety is tested when Bonnie (Janney), her recovering alcoholic mom, reappears chock-full of passive-aggressive insights into Christy's many mistakes.

Bonnie joins Christy's already complicated circle of relationships: her handsome, married boss - and lover - Gabriel (Nate Corddry); the restaurant's hot-tempered chef, Rudy (French Stewart); her pretty, 16-going-on-25-year-old daughter, Violet (Sadie Calvano); her sweet but overly honest son, Roscoe (Blake Garrett Rosenthal); her irresponsible ex-husband and Roscoe's father, Baxter (Matt Jones); and Violet's clueless boyfriend, Luke (Spencer Daniels).

Christy tries to remain positive as she pursues her new path in life, but she faces an uphill battle, surrounded by a dubious support system - and a copious amount of dysfunction.

Chuck Lorre and Eddie Gorodetsky (Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory) are executive producers for Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Pamela Fryman directed the pilot. Gemma Baker co-wrote the pilot with Lorre and Gorodetsky.
