Elliott’s character, Mike, is a manly-man widower who marries Kaczmarek’s character and moves to her place with his three children… upsetting the cush life of her stunted, thirtysomething son, who still lives at home.

Peter DaCunha (Reign) and Brendan Meyer (the Canadian Mr. Young) also were cast as two of Mike’s kids.

The multi-camera comedy will be executive-produced by Ricky Blitt (Family Guy), Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory) and Stephen McPherson.

Elliott’s post-JAG TV credits include Close to HomeCSI: NY and GCB.

  • Ok, I’m getting confused. Does every new show have the word “family” in the title?

  • This is one of the only comedies on the networks’ development slate that I’m interested in seeing. I hope it gets picked up.

    • I’ll be surprised if it doesn’t. They surely pulled the Samuel L. Jackson commercials where he sais “every damn day” after a few weeks. Now he says “every single day”. The more conservative viewers won’t be happy to see that title on a regular show.

      • Catering to conservatives isn’t always a good idea though. It tends to remove what makes a show fun or interesting.

  • This script is awesome. Very bizarre. A healthy combination of Get a Life, The Brady Bunch and The Ringer (the movie).
