OPENS COMEDY SEASON 2020
Believe it or not, although we are two months into the new Autumn season, we still haven't had a single comedy series on any of the networks. B POSITIVE will finally open the season of TV comedies when it starts next
week on CBS, Thursday, November 5th! Chuck Lorre's multicam sitcom was the only one to have the pilot episode done before corona outbreak.
Neighborhood will return November 16th with its third season, and Last Man Standing's final season will air from January when some of the other new sitcoms might start as well.

THE STORY OF B-POSITIVE
Faced with finding a kidney donor, newly divorced dad Drew (Thomas Middleditch) is at the end of his rope when he runs into Gina (Annaleigh Ashford), a rough-around-the-edges woman from his past who volunteers
her own. Together they form an unlikely bond and begin a journey that
will change both of their lives. As a therapist, Drew’s job is to help
his patients through their personal problems and try, as much as they
can, to maintain a
positive outlook. It’s a little harder than usual
though, considering Drew suddenly finds himself in a less-than-positive
situation. Things might start looking up for him when a former high
school acquaintance pops back into his life – especially when she ends
up being the perfect B-positive donor match!

WHO ELSE IS IN THE CAST?
Kether Donohue will play Gabby, a party girl, Sara Rue will be Julia, Drew’s realtor ex-wife who had an affair – exactly the reason why she’s now
the ex-wife. Izzy G will play Maddie, Dew’s daughter who’s wise beyond her years and often acts as a parent to her mom and dad. Terrance Terrel joined the cast as Eli, a professional football player and a fellow kidney donor-recipient who meets Eli in dialysis.
