Set in a women's extended-care unit of a Long Beach, CA hospital, GETTING ON follows the daily lives of a ragtag staff assigned to care for elderly patients who are, well, getting on. Nurse DiDi (Niecy Nash) is the no-nonsense newbie who spends her first day on the job being reprimanded for cleaning up unidentified feces left in the lounge. Unit veteran Nurse Dawn (Alex Borstein) is tasked with training DiDi, but winds up obsessing over a budding relationship with male Supervising Nurse Patsy (Mel Rodriguez) - a new hire who tries to implement a Disney-inspired, customer centric work culture, while fending off questions about his sexual orientation. Medical-research star, but has instead been sentenced to purgatory at the facility. Her staff, including Alex Borstein (Family Guy), Niecy Nash (Reno 911) and Mel Rodriguez (Community), blend outrageous humor with unexpected moments of tenderness.
