Sideswiped is based on a true story by Carly Craig. A lifetime of saying no has left Olivia (Craig) single and miserable on her 35th birthday. In Sideswiped, this workaholic verging on a breakdown vows to plunge into the hellish world of Tinder by dating all 252 of her matches. She is spurred on by her sister Jayne (Frei), a young married woman experiencing a seven-year itch. The sisters are joined by their recently widowed mother, Mary (Rosanna Arquette), who now also is a part of the online dating scene. This eight-episode series is a multi-generational comedy about relationships - both romantic and familial.
