Californication follows the life and times of best-selling novelist Hank Moody as he tries to find happiness in the endless sunshine and blue skies of Los Angeles. The writer, originally from New York City, spends his days partying, driving around in his classic Porsche, meeting beautiful California women, and hanging out with his socially awkward agent, and best friend, Charlie Runkle. But life as America's bad-boy novelist isn't always sweet. Hank's only calling in life, besides writing, is to reunite with his family, made up of his beloved ex-girlfriend Karen Van Der Beek and their daughter, Becca. Although Hank only wishes the best for them, his constant antics and self destructive nature always seem to get in the way of him keeping them happy, often leading to heartbreaking results. Even with the best of intentions, Hank just can't seem to catch a break. Hank's stylish ways and witty humor are complimented by the eclectic cast of characters he runs into and situations he finds himself in. From writing a biography for a legendary rockstar producer, to having his bestselling novel turned into a romantic comedy he loathes, to helping a gangster rap celebrity write a TV series, it's impossible to know what Hank will find himself involved in next, but one thing always stands true; it's bound to be a messy situation, and a testament to just how far Hank can be pushed before he loses his trademark cool. Filled with hilarious lines, memorable quotes, and often heartbreaking twists, Californication keeps you watching and waiting for the next episode, not just to see what Hank will get himself into, but to see if he will finally get his personal demons under control, not just for his own sake, but for that everyone he loves.
