About the Show
In this comedy about a working class Chicago couple who find love at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting, Officer Mike Biggs (series star Billy Gardell) is a good-hearted cop who sincerely wants to lose weight. Mike's partner, Officer Carl McMillan (series star Reno Wilson), is a thin, fast-talking wise-guy who, despite his teasing, encourages Mike on his road to slimness and romance. While speaking at an O.A. meeting, Mike meets Molly Flynn (series star Melissa McCarthy), an instantly likeable fourth-grade teacher with a good sense of humor about her curves. For Molly, focusing on smart choices isn't easy while living with her sexy older sister, Victoria (series star Katy Mixon), and their mother, Joyce (series star Swoosie Kurtz), both of whom flaunt their effortless figures while indulging their healthy appetites right in front of her. Mike also faces temptation at the diner that he and Carl frequent, where they've become friends with a Senegalese waiter, Samuel (series star Nyambi Nyambi), to whom dieting is a foreign concept. Mike and Molly found each other in the most unexpected of places. Now, they're about to find out where their quest for companionship will take them.
