Three sisters do what they do best - deal with life, love and lunacy on the telephone lines that bind - when their father is admitted to a Los Angeles Hospital.
After years of wild living, intermittent affection and constant phoning, he is finally threatening to die.
In Hanging Up, an exploration of family at its best, worst and funniest, we are introduced to the Mozells: patriarch Lou and daughters Georgia, editor-in-chief of her self-titled women’s magazine; Eve, the daddy’s-girl-turned-responsible-middle-sister; and Maddy, a semi-successful soap actress.
They telephonically cope with the joy, tears and conflicting emotions that plague all families - and most important, find a way to laugh despite their hang-ups.
Tagline: Every family has a few hang-ups.
