Working Class is an American television sitcom created by Jill Cargerman, which premiered on CMT on January 28, 2011.[1] The network ordered twelve episodes for the comedy, which is the first scripted series for the network.[1]

On April 11, 2011, CMT cancelled Working Class after only one season due to low ratings.[2]


The series follows Carli Mitchell (Melissa Peterman), a single mom from a rough and tumble background, trying to give her three kids a better life by moving them to an upscale suburb. She quickly finds that making the transition to “the good life” is harder than she thought.[3] Patrick Fabian plays a grocery shop worker.[4]
