Kevin Can F**k Himself: Living the Dream & New Tricks  Season 1, Ep 1

Follows the story of Allison McRoberts (Annie Murphy), a woman we believed we knew: the prototypical Sitcom Wife. She's beautiful and can take a joke (though she's usually the butt of them). And she's married to a guy who must've won some sort of marriage lottery, because she looks the way she does and he's...funny. But what happens when we follow Allison out of her husband's domain? When she finally wakes up to (and revolts against) the injustices in her life? Kevin Can F**k Himself breaks television convention and blends multi-camera comedy with single-camera realism to make us ask, "Who and what have we been laughing at all of these years?" Includes the AMC season premiere of episodes 1 and 2. [more inside]
