It’s wedding season, and for Alice (Maya Erskine) and Ben (Jack Quaid), it seems like everyone is tying the knot, except them. Alice is going through a breakup, and Ben’s best friend is getting married, leaving him behind. To make matters worse, his dad springs the news that he’s getting remarried in a few months. Feeling alone in their singleness, Alice and Ben agree to team up, going as each other’s dates, and embarking on an odyssey of ten weddings, where they’ll make new friends, meet each other’s odd families, confront their hang-ups with love and relationships, and ultimately push their friendship into uncharted territory.
