2 Broke Girls

the series philosopher 2 broke girls2 Broke Girls is an American television sitcom created for Warner Bros Television by Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City) and Whitney Cummings (Whitney). It premiered on CBS in the United States on September 19, 2011, during the 2011–12 television season. The series is set in the Williamsburg neighborhood of the New York City borough of Brooklyn, United States.

The series chronicles the lives of two waitresses in their mid twenties—Max Black (Kat Dennings), who comes from a poor working-class family, and Caroline Channing (Beth Behrs), who was born rich but is now disgraced and penniless due to her father, Martin Channing (Steven Weber, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Chasing Life), getting caught operating a Bernard Madoff-esque Ponzi scheme—working together at a Brooklyn restaurant. The two become friends and build toward their dream of one day opening a cupcake shop. Among those working with them at the restaurant are their Korean boss, Han Lee (Matthew Moy, Scrubs, Steven Universe); Oleg (Jonathan Kite), an upbeat but perverted Ukrainian cook; and Earl (Garrett Morris, Hunter, Hill Street Blues), a 75-year-old black cashier. Also featured starting late in the first season is their neighbor and part-time boss Sophie (Jennifer Coolidge, Joey, The Secret Life of the American Teenager), a Polish immigrant who runs the housecleaning company Sophie’s Choice.
