SYNOPSIS: A Texas TV anchorwoman on “administrative leave” (the result of an on-air meltdown) comes to the tiny Georgia town of Throckmorton, which she had visited as a girl. She meets a few of the locals, some of whom are a little short on Southern hospitality. She has just dropped off her son (who has his own issues) to start college in Atlanta. But the big questions concern a pile of bricks in Throckmorton that may provide some answers about her late father. And did we mention it's a comedy?
