Anna (Zoe Lister-Jones, "Life in Pieces") and Ben (Adam Pally, "Making History") are a married couple in trouble. Neither have lived up to their true potential: she an aspiring novelist-turned-Uber driver, he a graphic designer who would rather sit at home playing video games. When their marriage counselor suddenly moves to Canada, leaving their troubled marriage in therapy limbo, they have no outlet to work through their increasingly frequent emotional, verbal battles. But then Ben has a potentially great idea: start a band and turn their fights into music. Reluctantly roping in the skills of their recovering sex-addict neighbor Dave (Fred Armisen, "Portlandia") on drums, they create songs that are simultaneously peppy, caustic, and perhaps a bit too TMI—on the lighter side, they have a song about their shared love of Papa John's Pizza; on the darker side, the hummable hit "I Love You (But I Don't Want to Fuck You)." But open-mic nights can't fix deeply rooted problems, and the sins of their shared past make for an uncertain future. Lister-Jones, in her solo screenwriting and directorial debut, has fashioned a dramedy that's honest, authentic, and deeply funny, with an ensemble filled with comedy mainstays, including Susie Essman ("Curb Your Enthusiasm"), Hannah Simone ("New Girl"), Retta ("Parks and Recreation"), and Erinn Hayes ("Childrens Hospital").
