Mike & Molly: Zee Café’s new sitcom starts this Tuesday – September 13, 2011
A new American sitcom, Mike & Molly is all set to hit the Zee Café screens on September 13 at 2300 hrs. Set in Chicago, Illinois, the series is centered around the love story of two ordinary yet extraordinary people, Mike Biggs (Billy Gardell) and Molly Flynn (Melissa McCarthy). Mike Biggs is a police officer who wants to shed some pounds and Molly Flynn is a fourth-grade teacher wanting to embrace her curves. The two meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting and become an unlikely pair.
But falling in love is no easy task, especially when surrounded by friends and family who are just a little too close and a little too opinionated. That’s why while Mike & Molly are learning to open up and trust one another with the help of each other, they also have to deal with the comments, jokes, and criticism from Mike’s fast-talking partner Carl McMillan (Reno Wilson) and his witty sarcastic mother Peggy (Rondi Reed), Molly’s slim, promiscuous sister Victoria (Katy Mixon) and nymphomaniac mother Joyce (Swoosie Kurtz), Samuel (Nyambi Nyambi), a Senegalese waiter at the officers’ favorite restaurant, and Vince, Molly’s mother’s boyfriend, with a smart tongue. Mike also gets some dating advice from Carl’s grandmother Nana (Cleo King).Click here to read more
