El (Chosen Jacobs), an aspiring sneaker designer from Queens, is a stock boy in a shoe store. Sparks fly after a chance encounter with Kira (Lexi Underwood), the daughter of sneaker royalty.

Michael Cera, Susannah Flood, and Laura Benanti co-star in the first season. Schumer writes, directs and, executive produces the series.
