We Need Help
"We Need Help" may take place in the world of the rich and semi-famous, but centers around a situation common to almost everyone: a terrible job. Max is a struggling actor and needs work (and just one good showbiz connection wouldn’t hurt either). He's agreed to take the job of being a personal assistant to actresses and friends Cheryl Hines and Rachael Harris (playing – kind of – themselves in the vein of "Curb Your Enthusiasm"). Needing the money to take classes, eat and pay the rent, he's willing to do things no 23-year-old man would ever do and keep his integrity in tact. Stay tuned for this and other Yahoo! Comedy original series premiering this September.
Cheryl is told she has to wear a merkin for a new role, but she only feels comfortable with her shared assistant’s, Max’s, help. When she calls Max, he is with his other boss, Rachael, attempting to rid her sink of silver fish, revealing to Rachael that Cheryl has a job on Iron Thrones, a show Rachael is auditioning for. Later, Rachael confronts Cheryl about the job and audition process.
Over yogurt, Rachael suggests to Cheryl that Max take notes during her therapy sessions. Max signs a non-disclosure agreement and then sits in on Cheryl’s shrink appointments, in which she discusses her relationship with Rachael at length. Later, when Max tries to get the ladies more yogurt, he almost gets arrested. Max accidently shows Rachael the notes he took during Cheryl’s therapy session.
Rachael is cast as a lesbian again, and Max jokingly suggests leaking a sex tape for the industry to view her as sexier, however Rachael actually thinks it's a good idea. EJ, Max’s roommate backs out of the sex tape, so Cheryl suggests Max just does it. Max uploads the video, however the feedback is not what Rachael hoped it would be.
Max is star-struck when he meets Chris Parnell and Maya Rudolph of SNL fame and embarrasses Cheryl. Rachael meets a man at the hardware store, Joe, who offers to help around her house, and asks Max to screen him for “red flags”. Max tells Rachael to ask him out, and when Rachael goes in for the kiss, Joe tells her he’s a priest.
Rachael and Cheryl passive aggressively compare calendars. Rachael agrees to attend a charity poker event as Cheryl’s plus one. Rachael gives Max detailed instructions about how to take care of her cat. Max saves seats for Rachael and Cheryl on the plane to Las Vegas.
