This series from Victor Fresco (Andy Richter Controls the Universe) centers on several teen characters who work and hang out at the mall food court.
There is 18-year-old, optimistic-but-not-ambitious Laz (Zachary Knighton, The Prince and Me); his 16-year-old angst-ridden and angry stepsister, Molly (Saige Thompson, 10-8: Officers on Duty); Laz's best friend Fred (Charlie Finn, Super Troopers); and Laz's new girlfriend Lily (Rachelle Lefevre, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow).
Home base for Laz and Molly is a blended family formed by the marriage of Laz's dad, Rick (Matthew Glave, The Wedding Singer), and Molly's mom, Michelle (Amy Yasbeck, The Mask).
Rick and Molly love all of their children, but they are particularly obsessed with the only product of their union together: the sweet, perfect and wise 8-year-old Gus (Frankie Ryan Manriquez).
Laz and Fred both 18, have been friends forever. Just out of high school, and unsure what they want to do with their lives, they take jobs at a mall food court, at the lame "Yippee, Hot Dogs" run by the always yelling Mr.Hut (Maz Jobrani).
There, Laz meets the girl of his dreams, the lovely and strong-willed Lily. Optimistic but not ambitious, Laz cuts a deal with his well-meaning but superficial dad Rick and equally superficial stepmom Michelle which allows Laz to continue living rent-free at home. All Laz has to do is keep an eye on his stepsister (Michelle's daughter), the angry, angst-ridden, 16-year-old Molly. Michelle and Rick hope that Laz will help socialize Molly and get her on the right track with the boy she likes - the sweet and very honest Jasper.
Rounding out the family is the perfect and wise 8-year-old Gus, the only product of Rick and Michelle's union and the object of their obsession.
