Show Summary

Ellen, which was titled "These Friends of Mine" during its first season, is comedy about the life of a young woman by the name of Ellen Morgan - a neurotic, thirty-something, bookstore employee who tries to get by life in dealing with her many random foils and follies (and not to mention her annoying and overbearing parents, Lois and Harold). Thanks to her friends, however, among them including the bubbly redhead Paige, insecure photographer Adam, her unsure-of-himself cousin Spence, coffee shop guy Joe Farrell, and the critical and obnoxious Audrey, Ellen is able to find the security, and the sanity, to get through her less than normal every day life. The show can be described as a combination between popular sitcoms Seinfeld and Friends, blending a perfect mix of comedy and situational humor with the drama and excitement of every day issues and life in the "real world".

  • Why is everyone asking shit from Ellen?

    This is a great sitcom. It is funny, and just fantastic. Love it.
  • Elderly Abuse

    Ellen, I am writing on behalf of my mother. She is 76. My sister recently attempted suicide, and we found out that she has taken over 30000.00 from her over the last 4 or five years. Mom is now taking care of Jen's 3 boys. Age 20, 14, and 10. She is devastated and the hits just keep on coming. Now they are in danger of losing the only transportation they have as well as utilities, ect. They took her . and fridge because Jen told her they were paid off and she took the money for the payment. I have started a page called Elderly Abuse on FB, and was wondering if you could address this issue somehow on your show. She has never done anything but good for people, especially her daughters and this is destroying her. She feels she is at fault somehow and is losing her trust in the good in people. I would be grateful for anything you could do to make her feel better about all of this. God bless you and all the good you do for people. Mom is a military widow and has really enjoyed some of the specials you have done on their behalf. Thanks again for taking the time to just read this. I understand if you can't do anything, but elderly abuse, physical, mental and fiduciary is becoming a growing problem and I hate that Mom has been a victim in all of this.moreless
