‘B Positive’ Preview
Thomas Middleditch and Annaleigh Ashford star in this new comedy from Chuck Lorre and Marco Pennette about a therapist named Drew (Middleditch) who is faced with finding a kidney donor when he runs into a woman, Gina (Ashford) from his past who volunteers her own.
Drew is a recently-divorced dad who starts forming an unlikely and life-affirming friendship with Gina as they begin a journey that will forever affect both of their lives. Kether Donohue co-stars as Gabby, Gina’s best friend; Sara Rue is Julia, Drew’s ex-wife; Izzy G. is Maddie, Drew and Julia’s teenage daughter; and Terrence Terrell is Eli, a new friend of Drew’s who is also going through dialysis.
The premiere focuses on Drew and Gina reconnecting after all these years, followed by episode two, “Die Alysis,” airing November 12, which teases, “When Drew’s condition worsens, he needs to make sure Gina is still serious about donating her kidney and winds up making her an offer she can’t refuse.”
Drew and Gina were high school acquaintances and she has grown up into a hard-partying lady who drives a senior van for an assisted living facility. The condition of the kidney donation is that she must stay clean and sober for three months before the transplant.
The New York Post’s review says that Lorre has struck sitcom gold again, writing, “B Positive moves quickly along without any distracting throwaways, and there’s a nice chemistry between Middleditch, late of HBO’s Silicon Valley, and Ashford, who’s good in just about everything (particularly on Showtime’s Masters of Sex). They both know their way around a spunky line of dialogue, and the writing is clever in establishing a comic framework that should propel the series along as Drew and Gina continue their journey together.”
B Positive airs Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
