Best friends since college,
Michelle, Karen, Nina and David, now all in their mid 30s, party in Vegas like kids on Spring Break.  This long planned “girls” weekend is a tonic; a well-earned break and a time to act like they don’t all have husbands, kids and responsibilities back home. It’s a time to pretend they are back in Residence playing quarters for tequila shots and debating whether David’s hook up was really gay or just experimenting.  At McCarren Airport each one calls home.  “Love you.  See you soon.”  A few hours later their plane crashes.  They are all killed.

And now begins the story…
of their husbands.  Eli, Mark, Chris and Theo are first drawn together as they bury their spouses, but they eventually discover that these other guys are a unique source of levity and support for them. After the funerals they may have gone back to their separate lives, but the new challenge of single parenting and the need for a few laughs with true friends pulls them back together. Necessity creates the bond. Time builds trust. And four men become more than friends.  They become family.

The Men…
is a one-hour prime-time adult drama that tells the story of four men who form a friendship that becomes a family, to create a future for themselves, their children and each other.
