Breeders is an uncompromising sitcom exposing the paradox of parenting that explores the lives of Paul and Ally as they juggle full-time careers, aging parents, a mortgage and the unenviable curveballs of parenting their young children.

When Ally's estranged father Michael appears on their doorstep, the family essentially takes on a third child but this one comes with baggage and opinions. Paul's own parents, Jackie and Jim, are on hand to help out, but their generation does parenting a little differently...
