After suffering a stress induced breakdown at work, Melanie Schnurr (Wilson) returns home to recuperate, where she is reunited with her brother, Bo (Gall), a failed stand-up comedian. Encouraged by the off-hand remark of their wearied father, Bo convinces Melanie to revive their childhood dream of performing glory. The two embark on an ill-conceived quest to get their own talk show as they engage in pop-culture infused banter. Their efforts are bolstered by Melanie’s long-term crush Ethan, a TV development exec, who is desperate to bring a fresh hit to his boss. Meanwhile, Bo begins a romance with the boss’s daughter, further inflaming Ethan’s workplace nemesis Stefano who initiates a plan to sabotage the entire group.
