Leanne Miller (Linda Cardellini) is a 36-year-old wife and mother whose hunger for fame and fortune leads her down a dangerous path. A former beauty queen and prom queen, Leanne is fed up with her unglamorously average lifestyle when she decides to take matters into her own hands by plotting a scheme to make her family instant celebrities. Teaming up with her ex-boyfriend, Billy (Skeet Ulrich), and his ex-con buddy, Jebidiah (Craig Robinson), Leanne conspires to have her 11-year-old daughter, Patty (Urusula Parker), kidnapped for just for a month or two. All Leanne has to do is keep the local press (Kristen Schaal) and Sherriff (Patrick Warburton) focused on the case at hand and off hers. What could go wrong?
