Whitney Cummings created and writes Whitney, a show loosely based on her life and comedy routine. In it, she plays Whitney, a photographer who lives with her boyfriend Alex. They have decided that marriage is not for them, since Whitney is skittish about commitment due to her tumultuous childhood. She tends to be clumsy in her relationships.
Alex is an internet entrepreneur while Whitney is a photographer. They live together in an apartment in Chicago.
Whitney, along with her two best friends, Roxanne, a slightly bitter divorcee, and Lily, who hopes to be married, drink heavily and rely on each other for support and advice. Whitney and Lily have been friends since college, and they have known Roxanne for several years.
Alex's best friend is a man's man. Mark is a Chicago police officer and is constantly on the prowl for women. When he is in the same room as Whitney and her friends he is sure to be sexist and offensive, but in a way that you can laugh at. He styles himself as a lady's man, but this is fairly hard to believe.
Occasionally Whitney's parents will appear and push her further over the line toward crazy. Ever word out of her mother's mouth is either a back-handed compliment or an insult. Her father is less nasty, but much more vacant. He is also a bit of a con man. Whitney blames her problems in life on her parents - with good reason.
Whitney is not a family-friendly series. One of the first episodes features Whitney trying to spice up her relationship; however, it ends up in hilarity, not in the gutter. Overall, this is not a show that one would want to watch with kids.
Whitney is funny, unique, and pushes the envelope. The ensemble cast works well together to make you laugh. This isn't just another sitcom with a pretty girl. This bombshell has bite.
