About The Neighbors Are Watching: A pregnant teenager shows up, literally, on her biological father’s doorstep, and the neighbors can’t stop talking. Joe Montana is a handsome restaurant manager who failed to tell his wife that he fathered a baby with an ex-girlfriend 17 years ago. Diana’s bombshell arrival in their quiet cul-de-sac sets off a chain reaction of secrets and lies that threaten to engulf the neighborhood along with the approaching flames from a Santa Ana-fueled California wildfire. A woman scorned, a former reality TV star, and a suburban housewife with her own checkered past—these are just a few of the warring neighbors who will be forced to band together when Diana disappears in the aftermath of the wildfire evacuation, leaving her newborn baby—and many unanswered questions—behind.
