The Suburbs -- a place where all the houses look the same, yet the families inside of them couldn't be more different. Brinkley, California is home to the aspiring and the established, the faithful and the promiscuous, and the moral and the corrupt. Each family that calls Brinkley home is battling their own demons, dealing with scandal and dirty laundry before it has the chance to hit the circuit of the gossiping housewives. It's a quaint little slice of societal hell -- where social standing is everything and reputation is paramount. Those that can handle it thrive and those that cannot... Well, they aren't worth the breath. Welcome to suburbia.
Father | Son | Daughter
The Monroes were the picturesque family over fifteen years ago; however, they’re far from that now. With a mentally absent father and his runaway bride, the two Monroe kids were left to raise each other and have created a strong bond because of it; though without parental involvement the two children haven’t necessarily grown up to be model citizens of Brinkley.
Father | Mother | Two Sons | Daughter
A name synonymous with wealth the Cartwrights live in the mansion on the hill – taking that elitist mindset when they interact with the people of Brinkley. Mr. Cartwright’s name elicits thoughts of businessman, moreso than father and his emanate wife is basking in her self-proclaimed title of head housewife. The Cartwright offspring tend to wear their family’s name on their sleeve, though an omnipresent cloud scandal is beginning to surround the family's name.
Father | Step-Mother | Two Daughters | Step-Son
A union of two families that are in the exact same place they were around the time of the marriage, nearly three years prior. Despite his children’s refusal to welcome their new step mother and brother into the household, Dr. Pierce has taken to them with open arms and treats his wife’s son as his own.
Two Mothers | Two Children [genders optional]
The Stanton household is a favorite of the town youth, minus the two Stanton children. Countless stories of the memorable events at dinner parties or the ever-circulating discussion of the families two matriarchs and their hands-off approach to raising their children keeps the family’s name in the mouths of all the gossiping housewives of Brinkley – and several of their husbands too.
