Please Like Me – a new series on CBC!
Please Like Me is a uniquely honest, six-part comedy/drama series written by and starring Australia’s favourite young comedian, Josh Thomas. With his 21st birthday around the corner, life finally seems to be coming together for Josh (Josh Thomas). But in one day his world is thrown into chaos. He’s dumped by his girlfriend, Claire (Caitlin Stasey), and introduced to a decidedly odd but very attractive man, Geoffrey (Wade Briggs). And when his divorced mum, Rose (Debra Lawrance), overdoses on pain killers, Josh is forced to move back into the family home to keep an eye on her. Along the way, Josh realizes he’s gay. Now, he has to help his mother deal with her depression & the rest of his family embrace his new found lifestyle. He does it all in his own awkward, self-centred, and hilariously frank way. Please Like Me premieres July 31, 2015 with back-to-back episodes Fridays at 9 & 9:30 on CBC Television!
