On the hit CBS comedy Mom, Anna Faris plays a recovering drug and alcohol addict who, along with her own pregnant teenage daughter, moves in with Faris' addict mom, played by The West Wing's Alison Janney.
Mom is about addiction, recovery, and redemption. While those are all heavy topics for a sitcom, Mom has been able to pull it off with charm and inherent humanity.
In this behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming episode Jail Jail and Japanese Porn, we get a glimpse at the roadblocks Faris' character faces on her path to recovery. Namely, she is in love with a man who does drugs, gets drunk and may prove to be a bad influence on her life.
Check out the sneak peek of the coming episode, including an intervention and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer as a guest star.
