ABOUT THE SHOW: Significant Other is a spirited and tender romantic comedy that follows Jordan Berman’s search for love. As he obsesses over finding Mr. Right, his closest female friends, one by one, beat him to the alter. But as Jordan searches for his romantic fantasy, he has to confront loneliness, self-pity, and what loving someone really means.
