Season 1

Big Love is an off beat comedy-drama about modern-day Utah Bill Henrickson who lives in suburban Salt Lake City with his three wives, seven children and a mounting avalanche of debt and demands.

The owner of a growing chain of home improvement stores, Bill struggles to balance the financial and emotional needs of Barb, Nicki and Margene who live in separate, adjacent houses and take turns sharing their husband each night.

While managing the household finances together and routinely sharing "family home nights," they try to keep simmering jealousies in check and their arrangement a secret - polygamy is illegal in Utah and banned by the mainstream Mormon Church.

Adding to Bill's woes are a series of crises affecting his parents who live on a fundamentalist compound in rural Utah. His ruthless father-in-law, Roman, the powerful head of the polygamist commune where his parents live is another constant trouble he needs to face.

Big Love explores the evolving institution of marriage through a typical atypical family. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to have three wives - the series provides the answer.
