Welcome Home Nikki Glaser?
E! (DStv 124)
Comedian, podcast host and roastmaster Nikki Glaser is getting a major wake-up call as new life events take her back to her roots in her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.
Unfiltered, relatable and unapologetically herself, Nikki navigates friends, family, and romance as a homegrown local celebrity.
Uprooted from her fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle, Nikki returns to St. Louis where she embarks on a hilarious and often uncomfortable journey of self-discovery.
In the midst of her chaotic move, Nikki leans heavily on her parents Julie and EJ Glaser, her childhood bestie Kerstin Robertson, her platonic roommate Andrew Collin, and even her ex-boyfriend Chris Convy.
As a big fish in a small pond, Nikki also experiences a comedy of errors as she struggles to find love.
Despite being back home, her focus is still sharp as she continues to hustle more than ever to make sure her star stays on the rise.
She is testing out the waters as a musician and often ropes her family into her professional sphere, sometimes to their joy or embarrassment.
Though her career is at a high, Nikki stays grounded by her friends and family who still see her as just Nikki from St. Louis.
