Vuzu (DStv 116)
Follows a tight-knit, but slightly dysfunctional family of five, all of whom gather in their hometown of Chicago for the "perfect" holiday.
From break-ups to arrests to sharing one bathroom, each family member is packing his/her own eccentricities and hiding secrets from the others - as if the holidays were all about carols and eggnog.
The family includes Sean Sr. (Denis Leary), his wife, Ann (Elizabeth Perkins), and their three grown children - Dan, the youngest of the siblings and the "creative one"; Bridget, the middle sister and the "overachiever"; and Sean Jr., the oldest sibling and "screw-up," still living at home with his parents.
Freshly single, Dan returns to his childhood home for Christmas to find it's in various stages of disarray, with one functioning bathroom.
As the extended family gathers for a welcome meal, Dan meets Cora, with whom he instantly clicks. There's only one problem: she's already dating his cousin.
Then, in an unexpected turn of events, all the Moodys find themselves living under the same roof again when Bridget, who lives in the Chicago area, returns to her childhood home with a suitcase in hand after a fight with her husband.
