In this Off-the-Clock comedy, Madelyn and Sameer are NPR-listening, latte-sipping blue-staters who are planning a family. Or they were, until they learn that because of a mix-up at the fertility clinic, Madelyn's embryo was accidentally implanted in another client's uterus. That news is hard to take; fostering a relationship with the other couple, NASCAR-loving NRA cardholders, is even harder.


Can these polar opposites make it through nine months of gestation without killing one another?
