About the show
2 Broke Girls is a comedy about the unlikely friendship that develops between two very different young women waitressing at a diner in trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn, who form a bond over their dream of one day owning a successful cupcake business. Only one thing stands in their way -- they're broke. Sarcastic, streetwise Max Black (series star Kat Dennings) meets the sophisticated, school-smart Caroline Channing (series star Beth Behrs) when the former trust fund princess loses all her money due to her father's Wall Street scandal, and reluctantly has to give waitressing a shot. At first, Max sees Caroline as an entitled rich girl, but she's surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style. When Caroline discovers Max's knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she sees a lucrative future for them and they begin to save money to reach their start-up goal of $250,000. As the girls' tally expands week to week, they become closer to their goal ... and closer as friends.
In season five, the girls continue to wait tables at the diner while trying to build their business, Max's Homemade Cupcakes, operating out of an after-hours cupcake window at the diner. Still trying to work their way out of "broke," Max and Caroline are realizing they might just be more alike than they thought.
