AOL On and Vuguru Debut All-New Comedy Series 'Playdate'

Following the success of Little Women, Big Cars, Fetching and Greetings From Home, AOL On and Vuguru are bringing you another original comedy series called Playdate. Set in suburban America, Playdate stars Amy (Stephanie Lemelin), a seemingly perfect stay-at-home mom, and Grace (Alicia Witt), the bohemian, eccentric, and new, next-door neighbor. The two soon become best friends; even their daughters are inseparable.

Playdate takes an unexpected twist when Grace turns on Amy, causing her new "best friend" to lose her grip on the parental balancing act where she finds herself at the center of the other mommy's scorn and ridicule. As more and more of her life begin to crumble around her, Amy starts to suspect Grace is behind her downfall. But is Grace really to blame or is Amy the one with the real problem?

Tune in to find out - the series debuts today! Watch the trailer below and check out new episodes each week on AOL On Parenting.

New Series "Fetching" Debuts on AOL On

Following the success of Little Women, Big Cars, and to celebrate international "Take Your Dog to Work Day", AOL just launched a new original video series, Fetching, on AOL On Relationships. Set against the backdrop of Los Angeles, Fetching stars Liza, a young woman who quit her job as a lawyer and ended her engagement in the same week, to pursue her dreams of opening her own business - a doggy day care store called "Fetching." The comedy about love, dogs and their owners, was created by Amy Harris, one of the producers of Sex and the City, Gossip Girl and the upcoming prequel to Sex and the City, The Carrie Diaries.

Fetching is the story of Liza, a lawyer who quits and job and calls off her engagement when she realizes that she's not ready to settle down and become the wife and mother her fiancé, Mitch, expects her to be. She starts over by using the money she saved for her wedding to open a new business: a doggy day care store called Fetching. She hires her friends Matt and Daveed, and the loveable Adi, to help out. As the business grows, Liza struggles to juggle challenging clients (and their dogs), the business competition, and her brother's family, all the while trying to find love again. The problem is, her dog Oscar has an opinion on who she dates too.

The cast includes:
  • Liza (Collette Wolfe, Next Caller, HOT TUB TIME MACHINE, Cougar Town)- A newly single thirty-something who has recently quit her job as a lawyer and opens a doggy day care called Fetching
  • Oscar - Liza's adorable mutt rescued from a shelter who is her closest (cuddliest) confidant, and may have better taste in who Liza should date than she does
  • Matt (Levi Fiehler, WOLF TOWN) - A single Princeton Grad who works as Fetching's dog walker and may not be quite living up to his potential
  • Blake (Dave Annable,Brothers & Sisters)- A local bank executive who is charming, devastatingly handsome and extremely allergic to dogs
  • Sheila (Elaine Hendrix, THE PARENT TRAP) - Fetching's biggest client, along with her overly pampered pup Frederick, just may be the shop's biggest pain in the tail
  • Adi (Sandra Vergara,FRIGHT NIGHT)- The sexy and opinionated Latina receptionist at Fetching who gives Liza her sassy but honest advice about love and men
  • David a.k.a. Daveed (Brian Tichnell, STAINED GLASS) - Fetching's gay dog groomer who was once the hottest hairdresser to the stars now only styles dogs because they don't talk back

The series was originally announced at AOL's Digital Content NewFront in April. Watch and share the entire series now: http://on.aol.com/studio/fetching.
