The New Adventures of Old Christine
THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Christine Campbell, a neurotic divorced mother and owner of a women’s gym who is in a constant struggle to keep pace with those around her. A frequent fixture in her life is her irresponsible ex-husband Richard (Clark Gregg), whose new girlfriend (Emily Rutherfurd) is also named Christine, hence the nickname “Old Christine” for the Louis-Dreyfus character. Christine lives with her son Ritchie (Trevor Gagnon) and her brother Matthew (Hamish Linklater), while Christine’s best friend and colleague Barb (Wanda Sykes) is constantly a shoulder for Christine to lean upon. Christine also struggles with her inferiority complex with the snotty “meanie-moms”, Marly Ehrhardt (Tricia O’Kelley) and Lindsay (Alex Kapp Horner) at her son’s private school.
