From Borat's Dan Mazer, the comedy centers on a wife and her husband and how they start to see their marriage in a whole new way when her newly divorced brother moves in with them.

Bibb will play Rose the wife who exudes an effortless cool from her suburban kitchen. She's a strong-willed, opinionated, fearless and wry-humored "say anything" kind of woman who is proud of her wild youth. She's married to Nate and the mother of a 6-year-old daughter and 18-month-old son.
