What if a modern-day Lucy and Ethel stumbled into Mean Girls?

There’s a four letter word for that…

Status-hungry, Chris, and her trusty sidekick, Leah, have finally arrived: they are part of the cool crowd, led by queen bee Roseanne, lusty Ted, and the intellectual import, Ghazal. But running with the In Crowd is anything but easy for this awkward duo, and they find themselves in dunce caps instead of stilettos. Can grown-up geeks keep up with Joneses this fabulous? They’ll keep trying!
