Series Info

A young man leads his oddball family and their real-estate-development business following a securities-fraud fiasco that put the father in jail. This is an arrestingly sophisticated and sardonic sitcom, with deliciously deadpan narration and stylish flashbacks, about mostly self-absorbed characters at odds with one another and the world at large.
