Bernard and Huey starts with post-collegiate Huey (a roguish ladies man played by David Koechner) and Bernard (his nebbishy best friend played by Jim Rash) tearing up the manhattan nightlife in the late 1980s. Twenty five years later, a washed up Huey arrives on the doorstep of Bernard, now a successful New York bachelor. As the two reconnect, Bernard starts a relationship with Huey’s estranged daughter Zelda (Mae Whitman), an aspiring graphic novelist. Meanwhile, Huey gets his mojo back and tries to seduce various women in Bernard’s life, while reconnecting with his own family. Eventually, at least one of them realizes that he might wind up having to marry a woman old enough to be his wife.
