2 BROKE GIRLS is a comedy about the unlikely friendship that develops between two very different young women who meet waitressing at a diner and want to one day own their own cupcake business. Sarcastic, street-smart, Max Black met the sophisticated, school-smart, Caroline Channing when the uptown trust fund princess became a waitress after losing all her money due to her father’s Wall Street scandal. Max was surprised that Caroline had as much substance as style. Caroline learned that Max had a knack for baking cupcakes and visualized a lucrative future for them. With some financial help from a friend, they opened a cupcake shop, lost the shop, then opened an after-hours cupcake window at the diner, where they tried to build their business while continuing to wait tables.
