Plot Synopsis

Brody, a young hot-shot banker at Remington Trust on the "top floor" of his building, thought he was just having a one-night stand with Jenny, a beautiful down-to-earth woman he met at an office party. However, he discovers she works in the maintenance department on the "ground floor" of his building. As Brody and Jenny try to turn their fling into something more, their worlds collide in the most unexpected ways, as the couple finds a way to deal with their annoyed colleagues and Brody's critical boss, Mr. Mansfield. Jenny is the boss of the ground-floor building-support team, where she works to live, not the other way around. She simply doesn't understand the appeal of the 100-hour work week in the world upstairs, but she is a big fan of Brody. Brody is an Ivy League-educated perfectionist who's fiercely competitive at everything he does. He's being groomed to follow in the footsteps of his boss, who disapproves of his relationship with Jenny, making Brody choose between pleasing his boss and discovering that there's more to life. Brody's boss, Remington Stewart Mansfield, is a self-made man, from a long line of self-made men, who has always wanted a son -- and he wants Brody to be that son. Upstairs, Brody works with Threepeat, whose parents made him feel inadequate and now would love to be in Brody's spot as the boss' favorite, so he's become Brody's insanely loyal best friend instead. Downstairs, Jenny's co-workers in the building's maintenance office are: Harvard, a know-it-all who is secretly enamored with her and earned his nickname because he went to college -- community college; Derrick, a part-time DJ, who is tough on the outside, but a pussy cat on the inside and always looks out for his friends; and Tori, a sexy young woman who loves to hit the clubs every night and catch up on her sleep at work. On Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT on tbs, GROUND FLOOR returned for its second season with Emily Heller joining the cast as Lindsay, a cute girl from the same small town as Jenny, who is hired as an associate fresh out of business school to work upstairs. In the season opener, "Unforgiven," Brody faces the music for abandoning Mansfield after he returns from Paris, and Jenny deals with the fact that Harvard has fired almost everyone.
TBS premiered the Season 2 finale of GROUND FLOOR on Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT. In the season ender, "The Proposal (Part 2)," Jenny freaks out after finding an engagement ring in Brody's bag, and Mansfield takes an instant dislike to his soon-to-be son-in-law. After winning hundreds of thousands at craps, Lindsay and Harvard go on the spree to end all sprees.
