via press release:

GETTING ON, a new HBO comedy series from Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer (creators of the acclaimed HBO series “Big Love”), begins its six-episode season SUNDAY, NOV. 24 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT). Based on the hit British series, the show is set in the women’s extended-care facility of a Long Beach hospital and follows the daily lives of put-upon nurses and doctors as they struggle with the darkly comic realities of caring for the elderly in an overwhelmed healthcare system. Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash and Mel Rodriguez star; guests stars include Molly Shannon, Daniel Stern, Harry Dean Stanton, June Squibb and Irma P. Hall.
The debut of GETTING ON will be followed immediately by the previously announced debut of the new HBO comedy series “Ja’mie: Private School Girl,” starring Chris Lilley.

    Yes, because there are so many “comic realities” in taking care of the elderly.
