What are the new shows about? ComingSoon reports:
2 Broke Girls is about two young women who meet while working at a diner and become friends in the hope of creating a successful business, if they can raise enough money.
Max (Kat Dennings), a street-savvy girl, is working 2 jobs to get by.
Sophisticated Caroline (Beth Behrs) is an uptown girl who is down on her luck, forcing her to work as a waitress.
Max views Caroline as just another inept rich girl, but is surprised to learn that Caroline has substance behind her shallow exterior.
Caroline discovers Max has a knack for baking amazing cupcakes and she sees a lucrative future for them, but they first need to raise the start-up money.
Working together, these two broke girls living in a very expensive city do everything possible to find their break. Michael Patrick King (“Sex and the City”) and writer-comedian Whitney Cummings (“Chelsea Lately”) are executive producers for Warner Bros. Television.
How To Be A Gentleman is based on the book of the same name and is a comedy about the odd friendship between a refined writer and his rough-around-the-edges personal trainer.
Andrew Carlson (David Hornsby) is an etiquette columnist who is devoted to a more civilized time of the past and has chosen to detach himself from today’s version of society.
Bert Lansing (Kevin Dillon) is a reformed “bad boy” from Andrew’s past. Bert has since inherited a fitness center that he runs successfully but is still known to be rude, loud, and sloppy.
A request from Andrew’s editor that he put a more up to date twist on his column or risk being fired, inspires Andrew to hire Bert as a life coach to help him be less of a gentlemen!
Andrews’s mother and sister get involved causing hilarious chaos and although Andrew and Bert’s views might be very different, they find each other’s missing link.
