The comedy introduces the Shea family, whose patriarch Tony (The Closer‘s J.K. Simmons) suffers a heart attack and realizes he can no longer handle the family handyman business alone. One problem: The logical candidate, his son Jack (Perfect Couples‘ Kyle Bornheimer), is a chronic screw-up with a less-than-stellar career history. Everyone, naturally, is waiting for him to biff big-time in this latest pursuit.
Rounding out the cast are Leah Remini (King of Queens) as Jack’s Aunt Terry, Johnny Pemberton (21 Jump Street) as his cousin Mason, Edi Gathegi (X Men: First Class) as Tony’s assistant Darren and Danielle Nicolet (The Starter Wife) as Darren’s sister Stitch.
Joshua Sternin (That ’70s Show), J.R. Ventimilia (That ’70s Show), Mark Gordon (Grey’s Anatomy), Andrea Shay (It Takes a Village) and Paul Buccieri (Prime Suspect) executive-produce the series, which is based on the British sitcom White Man Van.
