(RELEASE) Described as Everybody Loves Raymond meets Will & Grace, I've Got A Life in Kalamazoo is based on producer Teresa L. Thome's one-woman show, Warm Cheese. It features Nilah Hoyer (Vicki Lewis), a small town singer/performer who, in the midst of a mid-life crisis, attempts to move her career to the next level. With her best friend, Clayton Croft, living the fabulous life in Chicago urging her to move to the Windy City, and a husband who merrily rolls along with all the punches, this is finally her moment. With one phone call, a turn of events occurs and Nilah must stay in Kalamazoo ? reluctantly ? to care for her aging parents, Bob, her lovable, humorous and politically incorrect father, and Imelda, her domineering, hypochondriac mother.
