Synopsis >

THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST follows a fresh-faced couple, Jeff (Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother) and Samantha (Bonnie Somerville, The Ugly Truth), and the lengths they must go to in order to get their daughter into a New York City private kindergarten. An oddball consultant, Sue Lemon (Amy Sedaris, Strangers with Candy), gets them an interview, but it's based on a lie: that Jeff is a renowned poet, instead of the humdrum computer programmer he is in real life. Keeping this ridiculous lie aloft proves more and more difficult, as Jeff is forced to play the role of a raunchy sexting poet for the entire school board. Featuring an all-star cast including Christopher McDonald (Harry's Law), Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager), Bridget Regan (Legend of the Seeker), John Hodgman (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) and Peter Serafinowicz (Couples Retreat), THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST offers a refreshingly adult twist on contemporary parenting.
