Can the queen of amnesia and a stand-up comedian turn a failed soap opera into a hit TV show? Kendra Lewis-Frost, a daytime drama writer, unintentionally came up with the idea for a sitcom about veterinarians. Austen Hughes, a comedian, is desperate to land a steady gig, even on a daytime drama. Madeline Puri, a late addition to the cast, may be the answer to everyone’s dreams.

Life behind the scenes is a minefield of egos, opinions, and romantic distractions as the writers and actors on “Pet Peeves” do everything they can to make their television show a hit before they become the punch line.
