The Best and the Brightest
A fresh-faced couple, Jeff (Neil Patrick Harris) and Samantha (Bonnie Somerville) must go to great lengths in order to get their daughter into a New York City private kindergarten. An oddball consultant, Sue Lemon (Amy Sedaris), gets them an interview, but it's based on a lie: that Jeff is a renowned poet. Keeping this ridiculous lie aloft proves more and more difficult, as Jeff is forced to play the role of a raunchy "sexting" poet. Featuring an all-star cast including Christopher McDonald, Kate Mulgrew, Bridget Regan, John Hodgman and Peter Serafinowicz.
