After spending time in the UCLA psych ward, Stevens is back on his meds and trying to mend his relationships as well as revive his career.
In the series premiere, "Brody Stevens, Who Are You?": Brody enlists some of his friends to explain what makes his comedy unique, and he tries to reconcile with his estranged sister before their mother's 80th birthday party.

The Greatest Dancer 2
The dance talent show returns, with dancers of any age and dance style competing to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing.
Hoping to discover the greatest dancer are the superstar dance captains: multi-platinum-selling singer Cheryl, Broadway and Glee star Matthew Morrison and Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse.
They are now joined by a brand new dance captain - pop star, dancer and choreographer to stars such as Beyonce and Taylor Swift, Todrick Hall.
The series is hosted by singer, rapper and former Strictly champion Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo, member of award-winning dance troupe Diversity.
Love Island star and professional dancer Curtis Pritchard joins the show as the new 'receptionist', looking after all the acts backstage as they nervously await the biggest audition of their lives.
At the auditions the audience holds the power, and only they will decide if the mirror opens for the acts or not.
The dancers need to impress at least 75% of the audience for the mirror to open and progress in the competition.
And there is a brand new twist at the end of each episode, where one dance captain will get to pick one act and take them straight through to the live shows.
Get ready to see talent from across the world of dance, from ballet to jazz, street to ballroom, contemporary to krump, as they give the performances of their lives in the hope of opening the mirror.
Expect dramatic auditions, outstanding talent and jaw-dropping surprises.
But who will become The Greatest Dancer?

Dominica's volcanic heritage gives it fertile soils, making the island rich in flowering plants.
Situated 1,000km west of Ecuador, the Galapagos archipelago has been so little exposed to humans, it allowed Charles Darwin to study and rethink the laws of nature.
