    Wait, The Sound of the Sumners, “a truly honest exploration of a contemporary family featuring a unique musical element that involves an irreverent and buzzworthy use of original music and songs”? Sumners, as in Gordon Sumner (the Police’s Sting)? Or as in Bernard Sumner (Joy Division, New Order)?
