The ‘Hilarious’ Premise of Dead To Me and Story Till Season 2
After the recent death of her husband in a hit-and-run case, the saddened widow takes no time in gathering the determination to solve this crime. Judy, a highly optimistic human has also suffered a recent tragedy for herself. Both the ladies share dramatically opposite characteristics but become friends after meeting at a support group. The new budding friends share their views on “The Facts of Life” while having several bottles of wine. Judy has a dark truth, specifically a secret, that needs to be shielded from Jen or else it will destroy her life forever.
