Mike & Molly is a comedy about a working class Chicago couple who find love in the most unlikely of places. Officer Mike Biggs is an easy-going cop who's found his perfect match in Molly Flynn, an instantly likeable fourth-grade teacher with a great sense of humour.
This ability to laugh through life is indispensable for Molly, who still lives at home with her over-indulgent sister, Victoria, and smart-talking mother, Joyce. Sharing the crowded house with a smile proves even more challenging for Mike, who's newly married to Molly - and feeling a little too "in" with the in-laws. It's no wonder, he seeks the companionship of his CPD partner, Officer Carl McMillan, a fast-talking wise-guy who still lives with his grandma and their friend, Senegalese waiter Samuel, whose dry wit and diner food keeps both cops fed and in their place. Between Joyce's lascivious fiancé Vince, Mike's cantankerous mother, Peggy, her scruffy dog Jim and the entire opinionated crowd of family and friends, Mike and Molly somehow find their own little haven of happiness.
