Surviving Suburbia follows a seemingly normal couple, Keith (Bob Saget) and Anne Stever (Cynthia Stevenson), in their life in the suburbs, complete with two children and a cooke cutter house. When new neighbors move in next door, Keith becomes distracted by their drop-dead gorgeous daughter; Henry Stever (Jared Kusnitz) becomes enamored with the teenaged girl down the street, who just became pregnant for the second time; and Courtney Stever (G Hannelius) lives her life as the princess she believes she is. Life at the Stever's proves that it's never "just another day in suburbia."
Steve and Anne Patterson, along with their two children, Henry and Courtney, enjoy easy living in the suburbs. That is, until their new next-door neighbors begin causing problems.
