Mel (Marc Maron) is a cantankerous pawnshop owner in Alabama who spends most of his time swindling customers while trying and failing to get his man-child employee Nathaniel (Jon Bass) to do any work. When Cynthia (Jillian Bell) and her wife Mary (Michaela Watkins) try to hawk a Civil War-era sword inherited from Cynthia's recently deceased grandfather, he tries to get the better of them.

"A smart, politically barbed comedy about truthiness and consequences." - Justin Chang, LA Times

"It's equal parts spry, improvisational comedy and salient social commentary." - Kathleen Sachs, Chicago Reader
