The Neighborhood cast introduces Dave’s mother on a brand new episode. As shown in the preview below, Paula is going to lead to some very comedic moments and embarrassing situations for Dave.

The show itself is about a man named Dave Johnson (Max Greenfield), who moves his family from Michigan to Los Angeles. The first seven episodes of the season have shown him trying to become friends with neighbor Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer).

Dave and Gemma (Beth Behrs) host a Thanksgiving dinner at their new home and invite the Butler’s over to celebrate. Paula (Marilu Henner) drops in, bringing her politically incorrect behavior to the neighborhood. Hilarity ensues.
