The Littlers are one of the town's most prominent families, even if they're not the most well-liked. Renee Littler is a successful news anchor and an indulgent mother to her wayward children. Tensions run high in the family as B-list actor Reuben lives in the shadow of his wife's success. Will their marriage survive the disparity or will the live-in help, Odine Perry, become a dangerous distraction?
Reuben appears to be a womanizer. He has a daughter, Tiara Angelista with his ex-girlfriend Lala Angelista and he is romantically interested in their nanny, Odine. Most of his family are unaware of him cheating on his wife with the nanny.
Only the little Deidre knows about her father's "little secret," making her enemies with him, though, curiously she is distant friends with her father's lover. Renee seems to be absent from her family's life, only caring for her children and work. This situation appears to be similar to that of the Pleasant family.
