TX Time: 20h30
Genre: Comedy-Drama

Better Things

This comedy-drama revolves around Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters - Max, Frankie and Duke - in Los Angeles.

She's mom, dad, referee and the cops.

Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil, an English expatriate, who lives across the street.

Sam is flawed and fierce with her love for her daughters, and her own mother, as well - sometimes heaping the love on when she feels guilty.

Sam's just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters' lives, have fun with a friend or two and also - just maybe - squeeze in some private time once in a while.

In the series premiere, "Sam": Sam Fox, single mother of three and a struggling actress, is just trying to make it through the day.

She is flabbergasted when her eldest, 15-year-old Max, openly asks her to score some pot for her.

She is harried when her eccentric, highly intelligent, OCD middle daughter, 12-year-old Frankie, interrupts her unpromising audition to ask if she can have a bunch of friends over.

And she is fed up with other women judging her when her youngest, six-year-old Duke, cries in public for no substantial reason.

It's not just that she doesn't forget anything - she can't; except for one thing: the details that would help solve her sister's long-ago murder.

Carrie has tried to put her past behind her, but she's unexpectedly reunited with her ex-boyfriend and partner, NYPD Detective Al Burns (Dylan Walsh), when she consults on a homicide case.

His squad includes Det. Mike Costello (Michael Gaston), Al's right-hand man; Detective Roe Saunders (Kevin Rankin), the junior member of the team; and Detective Nina Inara (Daya Vaidya), a sassy, street-smart cop.

Being back on the job after a break feels surprisingly right for Carrie. Despite her conflicted feelings for Al, she decides to permanently join his unit as a detective solving homicides - most notably, the unsolved murder of her sister.

All she needs to do is remember.
