If you're looking for some laughs after a tiring day, something we all need a bit more of these days, look no further! This fall, Netflix serves up a hearty dose of laughs and smiles with the new original comedy series, 'Pretty Smart'. The series comes from the writers of 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' and 'How I Met Your Mother'.


Having said that, the series is focused on actress Emily Osment. Although she might be known for playing happy-go-lucky characters like Lilly in 'Hannah Montana' and Gabi in 'Young & Hungry', she’s taking a high-brow turn as the intellectual and aspiring novelist Chelsea, who moves in with her super chill, easygoing sister, Claire, and her three seemingly eccentric roommates.

Where to watch?

The series will be available to stream on Netflix.


The official synopsis reads: " After getting unexpectedly dumped by her boyfriend, Chelsea (Emily Osment), a high-brow, Harvard-educated intellectual and aspiring novelist, is forced to move in with her bubbly, carefree, not-so-intellectual West Coast sister, Claire (Olivia Macklin), and her three lovably eccentric, not-so-intellectual roommates: Grant (Gregg Sulkin), a distractingly handsome personal trainer, Solana (Cinthya Carmon), a former lawyer turned healer, and Jayden (Michael Hsu Rosen), a social media influencer.


But Chelsea’s tough, sometimes judgemental exterior starts to soften as she gets to know her new friends, and they begin to form an unlikely found family.”
