In the single-cam sitcom from Mike Sikowitz (Rules of Engagement), cultures collide when a white family and a Latino family are bonded together when their children fall in love and soon must deal with an unplanned pregnancy.

O’Malley will play Dan, an affable and charming orthodontist who’s not equipped to handle his 18-year-old daughter’s unexpected bun in the oven. But he is energized by the idea of starting his next chapter when she leaves the nest.

In addition to Glee, O’Malley’s credits include Yes, Dear, My Own Worst Enemy. My Name Is Earl and an arc on the current season of FX’s Justified. He also continues to serve as a writer on Showtime’s Shameless.

    Is that means burt’s going to die?!

    • Stacey says:

      Just like the other pilots and show’s he’s tried out for her. I assume he’ll do both. Ryan has said Burt won’t die. Since we have only really seen him maybe twice this season. He can come and go quite easily, if this show is picked up!

    Really love him! He should be in everything!

  3. Hugo says:

    I hope Burt won’t die. Mike is an awesome actor.

  4. Margie says:

    Ugh. Rules of Engagement is awful. Hope this one is better.

  5. Wasn’t there a tv show in the 80s about neighboring families (one latino) who end up related because the teenagers get together, get knocked up and marry? The families actually break the walls down between their duplex so the kids don’t have to pick which family to live with. Wish I could remember what the title of the show was!
