Series Info

A spoof of the after-school specials of the 1970s and 1980s, "Strangers With Candy" is the story of 46-year-old Jerri. She ran away from home and became "a boozer, a user, and a loser" after dropping out of high school as a teenager, supporting her drug habits through prostitution, stripping and larceny. She has been to prison several times and wants to be a popular student at Flatpoint High. Possibly illiterate, she tries out eating disorders so people will like her, and at home, she has to deal with her mother's alcoholism.
