What Is the Story of What Rhymes With America?
Hank (True Blood's Chris Bauer) is a recently divorced dad. Because of the messy way his marriage ended, he must begin from square one with his rapidly maturing teenage daughter Marlene (Level Up's Aimee Carrero). At work Chris finds a friend in the hilarious and unpredictable Sheryl (Tony nominee Da'Vine Joy Randolph) and thanks to a chance meeting, he becomes involved with the seriously complicated but loveable Lydia (Seana Kofoed). What Rhymes with America examines how Hank adjusts to his new life and juggles relationship with three very different women.
