From the official description of the show:
I HATE MY TEENAGE DAUGHTER is a new multi-camera family comedy starring Jaime Pressly and Katie Finneran as single moms, best friends – and former nerds – who fear their privileged and overly indulged daughters are turning out just like the mean girls who picked on them in high school.
ANNIE (Pressly), who was raised in an ultra-strict, über-religious household where she had little-to-no freedom, pretty much allows her daughter, SOPHIE (Kristi Lauren), to do whatever she wants. Annie’s best friend NIKKI (Finneran), once an unpopular, overweight social pariah, is now a pretty Southern belle who also allows her daughter, MACKENZIE (Aisha Dee), to do as she pleases.
Watch the promo for the series premiere episode:
Jaime Pressly said of the role, “In order for me to come back to TV – being that Earl is still on [in reruns] and that Joy was such a strong character – I have to be able to play something that was completely opposite of her. And this character is definitely that.”
Until our recap, enjoy these photos from the show’s first episode:
Lydia loves reading and writing about all things celebrity. She’s a fan of True Blood and anything Charlaine Harris scribbles on paper. She’s Team Eric, in case you were wondering. She loves vampire movies, but you wouldn’t catch her going near Twilight. (Vampires do NOT sparkle!) She loves all music, except for country and will play the same song over and over incessantly. Seriously. Please put the Culture Club CD away already.
