About this show

Raised by Humans is a comedy-drama, a Beauty and the Beast story for our times. It tackles fractured families, loss and intolerance, and ultimately makes room for love and second chances. The story takes place in three alternating worlds: the small town of Milkweed, the top of Bear Mountain, and the outrageous Afterlife, where a spandex-clad Gabriel runs a support group for the recently departed called PAL: Parents of Adult Losers. Back on earth, Bonnie Rose Hershberger, a lonely single mother with a troubled teenage son refuses to mourn her estranged parents who recently died in a mysterious bear attack. She retreats to the top of Bear Mountain where she downs a bottle of pills. Bonnie is rescued (or is she abducted?) by a bear-beast who takes her to his cave. Nature, in all its romantic savagery, provides the setting where mysteries abound and three worlds collide in an emotional romp through heavenly and earthly planes.
