Allie needs a new job but keeps bombing her interviews. Evan, the friendly bartender, suggests she could make some easy cash by selling pot. Gabe wants Allie out of the house so he can be alone with his new crush. Speaking of new crushes, Allie has a satisfying date with Luis from the New Year’s Party.

Episode 4 – ‘Panic Button’
Allie calls Gabe in a panic and like a true best friend, he swoops in to clean up her mess. Things might actually be starting to look up for Allie. She sells her pot stash and scores a second date with Luis. Only to find out that her and Gabe’s cover up might not have been quite as expertly executed as they thought.
Episode 5 – ‘Liz Taylor 101’
Allie accidentally shows Luis her cards and needs to make a quick getaway. But Luis — while cute — is no idiot, and pushes Allie to explain her behavior. But just as she makes her way out of one mess, Gabe gets a call from Nashville Police…
Episode 6 – ‘Shotgun Wedding’
With the police calling and no money to escape, Allie and Gabe have to make a plan. And thanks to Allie’s crime documentary addiction, they actually manage to come up with a harebrained idea that might just save them.
Episode 7 – ‘Epilogue: A Deadly Divorce’
Allie and Gabe are headed to court! But of course, they’re going to settle their troubles in the most dramatic way possible. Things are once again looking up for Allie. But her ride off into the sunset is derailed when she gets a frantic call from Gabe who is standing over something, or someone that looks an awful lot like a corpse…
Meet The Main Characters
Sarah Hyland as Allie:
Meet Allie – She’s Gabe’s BFF and she never turns down a shot of cheap tequila or bowl of Honkytonk potato salad. She calls herself a “beautiful tropical fish” to hype herself up. And BTW she’s an expert flip cup player (aka “the flipper”). Allie prides herself on her “hot ankle” and she’s totally turned on by Top Chef, specifically Tom Colicchio. She handles stressful situations with a joke. She’s a terrible novice pot dealer (but an enthusiastic pot smoker). Og and she’s the “lovable troublemaker” of this dynamic duo. Ultimately loyal, but not necessarily the most self-aware, Allie is always digging herself into a deeper hole for Gabe to help her out of. You’re going to love following Allie through this hilarious rom-com series.
Allie is played by the one-and-only Sarah Hyland. You might recognize Sarah, or should I say her voice, since we’re podcasting here, from all 11 seasons of Modern Family, Geek Charming, or The Wedding Year. Sarah has a fun and charismatic voice and a super upbeat personality. Making her the perfect person to play the messy and dramatic character we call Allie.
Harvey Guillén as Gabe:
Gabe is a fiercely loyal best friend to Allie and throughout the series, he will keep us updated on allllll her misfortunes. Gabe is an amateur drag queen who specializes in Dolly Parton and he’s currently crushing on his local barista, Corey. He’s totally obsessed with Golden Girls (and has the wig to prove it), playful, creative, and witty. He is what you’d call the “ideas guy” of the duo and he’s always bailing Allie out of her sticky situations.
Gabe is voiced by Harvey Guillén, well-known actor and comedian. You might know Harvey from What we do in the Shadows, the hilarious comedy Werewolves Within, or you might recognize his voice from The Mickey Mouse Show! Guillén is a 2022 nominee for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. Also, on top of acting, he also dabbles in producing and directing. Harvey’s lighthearted yet dramatic personality allows him to fully commit to the role of Gabe and we’re totally here for it!
