Ultra Conservative Claire Vanguard wants to 'give back' by running for office to cancel the 'cancel culture' that has become Malibu politics. Wackiness ensues.
Claire Vanguard (Marybeth Massett, Ray Donovan, The Social Network) is an Ultra-Conservative woman living in Malibu whose husband leaves her for a 'Hippie' Left wing 'granola grandma.' Claire decides the best revenge is a successful life and decides to run for public office. Claire seeks the endorsement of her friend and Republican 'King Maker' Suzanne Mercer(Linda Purl, The Office), the wealthiest Republican on the west coast. "If I could get DT elected anything is possible!" Wackiness ensues.

At the top of the Pilot, we meet Claire at an impasse in her 25 year marriage. In fact, Chester (Tom Jenkins, Oppenheimer, Yellowstone) is leaving Claire this same day. And while Chester looks to be embarking on his mid life crisis, he’s actually running away with an older progressive woman with whom he’s found a connection. What Chester doesn’t realize is that Deborah(Joan Sweeny, Follow the Prophet) will be introducing him to a brand new world, the world of the wild ‘Liberal Hippie. ‘

While attending a fundraiser hosted by longtime Republican operative Suzanne Mercer, Claire tells Suzanne of her aspiration to ‘give back’ as a public servant. An endorsement by the powerful Suzanne would ensure Claire’s candidacy is taken seriously, Suzanne having been key in Donald Trumps election success. During the fundraising for ‘Arms for Teachers’, Claire meets her future campaign manager Tony, and he charms his way into Claire’s life. Unbeknownst to Claire it appears Tony is a Federal Agent. Claire prepares to become the candidate, and meets with her new Campaign team. Per Tony’s instruction, Claire attends a rally in downtown Los Angeles. And much to Claire’s chagrin learns it is an anti gun rally.

Chester has also been immersed in his new environment. Deborah does her best to introduce him to new food, progressive concepts and causes like saving the Bees.
She takes Chester to the Hippie Compound where their spiritual guru Jocelyn King
(Alexandra Grey, Empire) is leading a retreat. Chester obliges and tries Vegan food and Rolfing techniques that are aimed at releasing deep emotional trauma, but mostly he wants to be with Deborah.

Suzanne does in fact, endorse Claire—But Claire is stunned by Suzanne’s offer and support at a Senate run. “The state needs us!” Suzanne also charges Claire with the huge task of getting Chester to move home. Suzanne tells her, “I don’t care how you do it, you’ve got to get that cock sucker back under this roof. We can’t run a campaign with whatever is going on with he and that little twat hippie-cashier.”

The final two episodes involve Claire and Suzanne’s attempt to get Chester to move home so that Claire’s Senate run will be sanctified at least by the appearance of a strong marriage. However, Suzanne and Claire’s plot fails and Claire accidentally burns Deborah’s house down and Chester, Deborah and Jocelyn must move in to Claire’s mansion with nowhere else to go. At the end of season one, everyone is living under one roof. One big happy…
