Best And The Brightest, The

The Best And The Brightest follows a fresh-faced couple, Jeff (Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother) and Samantha (Bonnie Somerville, The Ugly Truth), and the lengths they must go to in order to get their daughter into a New York City private kindergarten.

An oddball consultant, Sue Lemon (Amy Sedaris, Strangers With Candy), gets them an interview, but it's based on a lie: that Jeff is a renowned poet, instead of the humdrum computer programmer he is in real life. Keeping this ridiculous lie aloft proves more and more difficult, as Jeff is f-rced to play the role of a raunchy "sexting" poet for the entire school board.

Featuring an all-star cast including Christopher McDonald (Harry's Law), Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager), Bridget Regan (Legend Of The Seeker), John Hodgman (The Daily Show With Jon Stewart) and Peter Serafinowicz (Couples Retreat), The Best And The Brightest offers a refreshingly "adult" twist on contemporary parenting.
