Maya

Played by Ginger Gonzaga

character

Maya is a ballbuster. Formerly a jock and currently a sports attorney, she’s tough as nails and tired of the weepy, metro men who populate New York’s dating scene. To be fair, she doesn’t really like modern girls either.

Maya was raised in working-class Pittsburgh by overworked parents. Her father would clearly have rather had a son, so Maya obliged by “manning up.” She spent most of her time playing basketball with the boys in the park. She caught the eye of scouts and eventually she played her way right out of her crappy childhood and into a successful life as a lawyer at a premiere sports law firm in Manhattan.

Maya didn’t escape from her rough childhood unfazed. Maya often pushes away men, women, friends, family, co-workers, clients -- pretty much everyone except her low-key work friend Liv -- as soon as she meets them. And she honestly doesn’t care. Like, at all. Or she hasn’t, anyway, until recently, when she’s started to wonder if her meanness might be leading her down a path of loneliness and isolation.
