When a single father decides that New York City is too much for his sixteen-year-old daughter, they move to the suburbs and get much more than they bargained for. ABC's new hit comedy, Suburgatory, chronicles the life and antics of this witty and charming father and daughter team as they encounter the eccentric residents of the fictional town of Chatswin. Jeremy Sisto and Jane Levy play the characters of George and Tessa Altman who meet numerous quirky suburban characters headed by actors Allie Grant (Tessa's best friend), Charley Chaikin (Tessa's rival), Rex Lee (the school guidance counselor), Alan Tudyk (George's best friend), Cheryl Hines, and SNL alumna Ana Gasteyer. During the first season, the series also picked up Alicia Silverstone as a recurring role and love interest for Jeremy Sisto. Past episodes have included scenes at barbecues, games of croquet, country clubs, trips to Atlantic City, tree trimming parties, exorcisms, PTA meetings, and other crazy high jinks of affluent Northern American suburbia. The characters of George and Tessa's relationship, throughout these adventures, remains central to the plot and provides an honest connection and jumping-off point for the episodes' varied and diverse plots.
Suburgatory is named after a book by former CNN Senior Producer Linda Keenan entitled Suburgatory: Twisted Tales from Darkest Suburbia that touches on her own experiences in moving from New York City to the opulent suburb of Westchester County. While the town in the show is fictional, episodes detailing the area code and zip codes put the "fictional" location of the show right about where Ms. Keenan's book takes place. The series airs on ABC and is produced by Warner Brothers Television and has been met with positive reviews and critical acclaim.
