Working the Engels season 1
In this comedy series a family of neâ€™er-do-wells must band together to keep their heads above water when their father and breadwinner passes away, leaving them a mountain of debt. The Engels must all go to work running Dadâ€™s storefront law firm, with one minor problem â€“ daughter Jenna Engel is the only one who is qualified to practice law. Unfortunately for Jenna, this also means taking on her eccentric relatives as co-workers. Ceil, the self-absorbed and overly dramatic but fiercely protective mother works as the firmâ€™s paralegal; Sandy, a former pill-popper who has never worked a day in her life, is the receptionist and first line of defense at the firm; and Jimmy, a petty criminal and bad boy who is utterly devoted to his family, is the firmâ€™s investigator. Jenna, the youngest sibling and â€œgood one,â€ becomes the unlikely family patriarch, running the law firm and keeping her crazy family together. Itâ€™s not pretty, but itâ€™s family.
