What's the story?

SWEET HOME OKLAHOMA is a reality series featuring a close group of friends who live their lives openly and wildly in the conservative world of Nichols Hills, Oklahoma. It stars attorney Angie “Pumps” Sullivan, who has been best friends with fellow attorney, Josh Welch, since law school. She is also good friends with Josh’s ex-wife, Jennifer. Joining the circle of friends is Lee Murphy, who returned to Oklahoma to raise her children after spending over a decade away. As viewers watch them cope with their respective divorces, work together to lose weight, and raise their families, they also get to see brief, humorous "street interviews" with other local residents about various subjects.

Is it any good?

The series celebrates friendship while showing the world that there are progressive residents in the state of Oklahoma. The cast members, all of whom are educated professionals and family-centered single parents, are very likable thanks to their lack of pretentiousness. The exchanges between them often feel genuine, too. 

The street interviews often feature some of the more stereotypical characters that the region is often known for. There's also range of silly moments and some strong adult themes throughout. But Sweet Home Oklahoma lacks the over-the-top drama that most Bravo reality shows are known for. Some reality fans may find this too mild for their liking, while others will find it refreshingly fun. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what it is like to live in an area that is known for having very different values from their own. What does it mean to be progressive? Conservative? How can people who have different beliefs come together and support their community like in Sweet Home Oklahoma?  

  • The cast of Sweet Home Oklahoma wants to challenge the stereotypes that exist about people living in Oklahoma, including being conservative, ultra-religious, and narrow-minded. Are they successful? Why or why not?
