About the show

Better With You explores the dynamics of one family with three very different couples: one unmarried, but in a happy, long-term relationship; one a brand-new relationship that suddenly hears wedding bells; and a couple who has been married 35 years, but may have a new take on life....

Maddie (Jennifer Finnigan)  and Ben (Josh Cooke) have been dating for nine years. They know each other inside and out, a relationship marked by contentment and affection, seeing their commitment to one another as a "valid life choice," something they proclaim often -- and, often, loudly.

Maddie's younger sister, Mia (JoAnna Garcia), has been dating Casey (Jake Lacy) for seven weeks. With a shared c'est la vie attitude, Mia and Casey are smitten with each other, and thrilled to explore the oh so many things they don't know about each other yet. But when they announce they are getting married and having a baby, it's news that completely throws Maddie for a loop.

Surprisingly, the girls' parents, Vicky (Debra Jo Rupp) and Joel (Kurt Fuller), couldn't be more pleased. Married 35 years, they have recently adopted a carpe diem type of attitude, much like Mia's, mostly due to getting older and losing a good portion of their savings when the economy tanked.

With three very different relationships tightly intertwined in one family, will it be free thinkers versus overthinkers, or will each couple begin to see things a little bit differently?
