Plot Synopsis

BROKE is a half-hour comedy series about Jackie -- a single suburban mother to Sammy -- who's shocked when her estranged sister, Elizabeth; her sister's outrageously wealthy, big-hearted, Latin husband, Javier; and Javier's fiercely loyal assistant/driver/friend land on her doorstep in need of a place to live after the couple's money dries up. Though class differences may separate the women, and the size of the house and the number of people living in it will test the limits of family ties, the familiar bond of sisterhood might be the catalyst they need to restore their relationship. When Jackie encourages Javier and Elizabeth to get jobs so they can contribute financially to the household, Javier gets work as a ride share driver, with Luis' help, and Elizabeth is employed as a personal shopper. Also, Jackie worries Sammy will get hurt by becoming so close with his uncle Javier.
On Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 9:30pm ET/PT, CBS premiered "Sammy's Party," the series finale of BROKE. When Sammy's birthday party location suddenly falls through, the family rushes to set up the celebration in the backyard and is surprised by an unexpected guest. Also, Javier and Elizabeth decide to look for their own apartment. Kyle Bornheimer returns as Barry, Jackie's ex-husband and Sammy's father.
