Hope & Faith is a comedy about what happens when the fast lane collides with the carpool lane. It’s about the moments that make you want to hug your sister and the times you have to resist the urge to kill her.
Hope and Faith have been living in two very different worlds. Stay-at-home mom Hope leads a busy, family-centered suburban life in the Midwest with her husband, Charley and three lively children. Her celebrity sister, Faith has been living the high life in Hollywood as a daytime soap opera diva until her soap’s character, Ashley Storm, is suddenly and unceremoniously killed off on The Sacred and the Sinful by her evil twin. Faith, who has never saved a dime, flees Tinseltown and the relentlessly inquiring minds of the tabloid press and seeks refuge in the suburbs with her sister. As Hope soon learns, you can kill the diva off on the daytime drama, but you can’t take the drama out of the diva.
Hope, a down-to-earth, happily married mom of three, quickly finds her tidy world up-ended by her celebrity sister’s arrival. She already had her hands full at home dealing with a busy household that includes two daughters a precocious pre-teen and a rebellious teen and a quirky son. But Hope begins to lose some of the control she holds so dear upon the arrival of Faith, whose outrageous antics have a way of engulfing the people around her.
Can Faith adjust to life far away from the spotlight without turning Hope’s world upside down? Can Hope share a roof with her larger-than-life sister and still hold on to normalcy and order?
