Socialites Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps trade New York City for small-town life in Benton, Ill., where they help spruce up the small town, which has a population just shy of 7,000 people. It's a fish-out-of-water experience for everyone involved, especially when the two Manhattanites check in to the local motel. At the request of the mayor, they take on tasks to boost morale and galvanize the town with new spirit. From building a new playground to revitalizing the local theater with a full-on variety show, Luann and Sonja have their work cut out for them as they embrace their temporary home. Whether searching for the town's famous crappie fish with their bare hands or going mudding with monster trucks, with Luann and Sonja in charge and out of their element, hilarity is sure to follow.
