‘Life in Pieces’ Episode Guide (Nov. 9): Jen Invites Her Boss and His Wife to Dinner

“Bunny Single Nightmare Drinking” (11/09/17) – When Jen invites her boss, Paul (Andy Buckley), and his wife (Julie Chen) over to dinner to impress him, she and Greg can’t remember his wife’s name and scramble to avoid embarrassment.

Also, Tim urges Tyler to start dating; Matt ends up having a nightmare about parenting after he and Colleen discuss having children; and Joan grows increasingly stressed about Heather living with her, on “Life in Pieces,” Thursday, Nov. 9 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Guest starring in “Bunny Single Nightmare Drinking” are Julie Chen (Boss’s Wife), Christine Woods (Lesley), and Andy Buckley (Paul).

“Bunny Single Nightmare Drinking” was written by Brad Copeland and directed by Eric Dean Stanton.

CBS’s “Life in Pieces” is a single-camera comedy about one big happy family and their sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments as told by its various members.

Of the three siblings, middle child Matt may have just found his true love, his co-worker, Colleen; his coddled youngest brother, Greg, and his wife, Jen, are overwhelmed by the birth of their first child; and the eldest, Heather, and her husband, Tim, are dreading their impending empty nest so much, they’re considering having another baby.

Their parents are Joan, the family’s adoring matriarch who would do anything for her kids – as long as she agrees with it – and John, the gregarious patriarch who’s searching for ways to soften the blow of turning 70. As the family’s lives unfold in four short stories each week, they try to savor these little pieces of time that flash by but stay with you forever, because these moments add up to what life’s all about.

“Life in Pieces” stars Dianne Wiest (Joan), James Brolin (John), Zoe Lister-Jones (Jen), Colin Hanks (Greg), Angelique Cabral (Colleen), Thomas Sadoski (Matt), Betsy Brandt (Heather), Dan Bakkedahl (Tim), Niall Cunningham (Tyler), Holly J. Barrett (Samantha), Giselle Eisenberg (Sophia), and Hunter King (Clementine).

Justin Adler, Aaron Kaplan, Jeff Morton and Brad Copeland serve as Executive Producers of “Life in Pieces.” The comedy series was created by Justin Adler. “Life in Pieces” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Kapital Entertainment.
