The Shealys are barely holding it together in this touching and offbeat dramedy. Matriarch Dotty is struggling to hold onto her memory, eldest daughter Shelly is looking for an escape route, golden child Donnie and his husband are constantly bickering, and the baby of the family, Averie, has gone from viral sensation to a discount store cashier. Back in their West Philly home for the holidays, one thing’s for sure: the only way they’re getting through this is together. Now being adapted for television as West Philly, Baby on AMC Networks, Dot is a loving look at the ties that bind - and drive us crazy.
