The boys’ AUNT TRUDY is warm, funny, and enthusiastic. She is caring in a well-traveled,
modern-thinking, benevolent kind of way. A new-age hippy, Trudy is struggling to adjust to her new job as a school guidance counselor, while also acting as a surrogate mother to Frank and Joe. Between all that and her brother Fenton disappearing on clandestine investigations, she often feels stuck in the middle of their secrets – a position that isn’t easy for her, especially when she’s in a relationship with the Chief of Police.
