Novelist Hank Moody has relocated from the creative hive of New York City to Los Angeles to write a screenplay for his most popular book. Unfortunately for his family, the personal demons he's developed over a lifetime also decided to come along for the ride. He's been in an ostensibly committed relationship with Karen Van der Beek for many years, but he can't resist the lure of beautiful women outside the home. He strives to prove that he can be a quality parent to Becca, his daughter, but that doesn't always come easy for him. These issues are compounded by his ongoing fight with alcoholism and his frequently erratic behaviors that complicate his work productivity along with his family and social lives.
