The untitled mother-son drama follows Todd (Astin), a talented but directionless P.I. who is the black sheep of his family. Despite their opposing personalities, he agrees to work as the in-house investigator for his overbearing mother, Margaret (Harden) a successful attorney reeling from the recent dissolution of her marriage.
Arredondo will play Francey, Margaret’s “Girl Friday.” An efficient assistant who can make anything happen in any amount of time, Francey tends to both Margaret and Todd in equal measure. She is often more affectionate with Todd than his own mother. Instinct tells her that Margaret and Todd working together is good for them, even if it is a bit explosive and chaotic. Margaret and Francey have a secret that has bound them together for years.
Winger portrays Lyle, very high maintenance, difficult and always by-the-book, he is one of two in-house licensed investigators working in Margaret’s law firm.
