In a comedy that brings together some of today's sharpest talent, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler team with writer/director Michael McCullers and producers Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn to tell the story of two women, one apartment and the nine months that will change their lives: Baby Mama.
Successful and single businesswoman Kate Holbrook (Tina Fey) has long put her career ahead of a personal life. Now 37, she's finally determined to have a kid on her own. But her plan becomes complicated after she discovers she has only a million-to-one chance of getting pregnant. Undeterred, the driven Kate allows South Philly working girl Angie Ostrowiski (Amy Poehler) to become her unlikely surrogate. Simple enough...
After learning from the steely head (Sigourney Weaver) of their surrogacy center that Angie is pregnant, Kate goes into precision nesting mode: reading childcare books, baby-proofing the apartment and researching top pre-schools. But the executive's well-organized strategy is thrown into disarray when her Baby Mama shows up at her doorstep with no place to live.
While the structured Kate tries to turn vibrant Angie into the perfect expectant mom, their situation descends into a comic battle of wills, as they will struggle their way through preparation for the baby's arrival. Ultimately they'll discover two kinds of family: the one you're born to and the one you make.
