While giving readings at a party, Maggie meets Ben, aka the man she's apparently destined to spend her life with. The only problem is that Ben just moved in with his high school sweetheart, and they live in the apartment next to Maggie's. This series is absolutely wonderful, and I truly can't wait for the world to finally see it. And lemme just say that Rebecca Rittenhouse and David Del Rio's chemistry is INCREDIBLE! Like, it's pure magic when these two are together. This series is a pure delight, and for my own sanity, I need it to have at least five more seasons. Starring: Rebecca Rittenhouse, David Del Rio, Nichole Sakura, Chloe Bridges, Chris Elliot, Angelique Cabral, Leonardo Nam, Kerri Kenney, Ray Ford, Adam Korson, and moreWhen it premieres: July 6 on Hulu
