Baggage Claim

Domestic diva Anne Marie Harmon looks like the picture of perfection, capable of everything from decoupage to running a multi-million dollar media empire. But after an uncharacteristic outburst of rage, Anne Marie is forced into therapy, and it doesn't take Dani long to realize that behind the façade of Anne Marie's happy homemaker image and lucrative empire is a woman with a shocking secret.

While Dani attempts to help Anne Marie confront her emotional baggage, she also works on shedding her own by organizing a garage sale. TK is trying to move forward too, but is bewildered to find that his efforts to seduce reporter Vivica are falling flat. As he is beginning to learn, nothing complicates a relationship quite like feelings. 

Even more surprising than TK's romantic revelation is one from the Hawks' most enigmatic team member, Nico, whose past has come back to haunt him – in the form of a sultry blonde who happens to be the wife of his boss, Marshall Pittman. And her surprising news could mean an uncertain future not just for Nico, but for everybody at the Hawks.

About Necessary Roughness

Dr. Dani Santino (Callie Thorne) thought she had it all figured out: she had a beautiful home, a successful husband, two great teenaged kids, and a satisfying career as a psychotherapist. But when she caught her husband cheating, Dani's perfect world began to unravel, and she was forced to find a way to keep her family, her finances, and her sanity intact. Then a romantic encounter with Matt (Marc Blucas), the handsome trainer of the local pro football team, the New York Hawks, leads to the chance for Dani to demonstrate her special brand of "tough love" therapy. Before she can say "Hail Mary," Dani has taken on the team's unpredictable star wide receiver, Terrence "TK" King (Mehcad Brooks), as a patient and has become the most sought-after therapist for pro athletes and other high-profile personalities on Long Island. Even with the ups and downs of being a newly divorced single parent and being employed by a demanding organization with its very own "Fixer"—the mysterious Nico (Scott Cohen)—Dani begins to find her footing.

As football season ramps up once again, Dr. Dani has a whole new batch of issues to tackle, both personally and professionally. Now that she's more deeply invested in the Hawks players' welfare—and in a new relationship with Matt—the pressure is definitely on to hold it all together, all while trying to keep her kids on track. It's a whole new season...and a whole new set of crazy.
