Strangers with Candy
is a comedy show from Comedy Central. It lasted 3 seasons with 30 episodes.
It follows Jerri Blank, a 46-year-old woman. After 32 years of living on the streets, drug dealing, prostitution, and doing time in prison, decides to pick up her life exactly where she left off, at Freshman year in High School. She also decides to move back home with her father, along with her stepmother and stepbrother.
She is back at Flatpoint High School, somewhat trying to do her best, but only ends up in crazy situations. Two of the most recognized teachers are Chuck Noblet, Jerri's bitter History teacher, who also has a secret relationship with Geoffrey Jellineck, Jerri's kinder Art teacher and somewhat adviser. There's also the overly stern Principal, Onyx Blackman, who sometimes also seems to have it in for Jerri. Jerri must also face problems with the more popular kids, whom she is desperate to fit in with. But she does have a small circle of friends, though she sometimes mock them, especially her Filipino friend Orlando. Though her problems as a street whore are over, new problems are just beginning.
