We Need Help is a reality sitcom web series from Fullscreen that premiered in 2013. The show follows the daily lives of Maxwell and his wife Cheryl as they hire a duo of personal assistants to help manage their hectic careers and personal lives. The assistants are Rachael and Brandon, who are not only tasked with taking care of the couple's various errands and appointments but also with keeping Maxwell and Cheryl's tempers and egos in check.

The show's format is a mix of scripted and reality, as the main storyline follows the chaos that ensues when the couple takes on their new team of assistants. Much of the humor comes from the various awkward, embarrassing, and absurd situations that the assistants find themselves in, as well as the antics of their demanding employers.

Maxwell Loeb, who is also the show's creator and executive producer, stars as himself. As a successful Hollywood talent manager, Maxwell juggles his demanding job and high-maintenance clients, while Cheryl Hines plays his wife, an actress and producer who also has a busy schedule. Rachael Harris and Brandon Johnson play the assistants.

Throughout the series, viewers get an inside look at the glamorous and fast-paced lifestyle of Hollywood's elite, as well as the more mundane tasks that come along with managing a successful career. From scheduling appointments and arranging travel plans, to picking up dry-cleaning and walking the dog, the assistants are constantly on the go, and often find themselves in the middle of personal drama between the couple.

Despite the humor and lighthearted nature of the show, We Need Help also explores more serious themes like the power dynamic between boss and employee, the struggles of managing a work-life balance, and the potential pitfalls of celebrity culture. Throughout the series, we see how the couple's expectations and demands can take a toll on their assistants, and how their personal and professional lives can intersect in unexpected ways.

Overall, We Need Help is an entertaining and often relatable look at the complexities of managing a successful career and personal life in the entertainment industry, with plenty of laughs along the way. The show's blend of satire, reality TV, and scripted comedy makes for a unique viewing experience, and one that will keep viewers entertained and engaged from start to finish.
