about the show
The comedy is set in the suburban Dallas apartment of Marshall and Julie Ann Katz (Zuckerman, Bowen), a young interfaith couple. When they discover that they have twin boys on the way, no one is kvelling more than Marshall’s mother Rhonda (DeSalvo), – queen of Texas organic foods, and the 21st century Jewish mother we’ve been waiting for. But, suddenly the whole family is pulled into a tug-of-war, with a little help from YouTube, a meddling gay school teacher (Sherry), and more than a few centuries of tradition. By the time it’s over, there’s no telling who (or what) will be left intact.
