Alex and Dave’s wedding was supposed to be the happiest day of their lives, for them and their long-time friends... until Alex left groom-to-be Dave at the altar. The breakup was a “huge game-changer” that complicated everyone’s lives and made everyone question their own choices. Alex and Dave were the glue that kept their urban family together: Alex’s sister Jane, a suburban housewife, and her buttoned-up husband Brad; Max, their perpetually underemployed gay friend; and Penny, who worries about never finding the right guy. A year later, this gang is still friends, although Alex and Dave are trying to figure out just where their relationship stands. Penny is convinced that 2011 will be “The Year of Penny,” and she starts things off by buying her dream condo. She’ll also be getting a new roommate when Alex moves in. Max may make the biggest change of all when he does something his friends never thought he’d do... get a steady job.
