The single-camera project tells the story of one family through the separate perspectives of its different members. Sadoski will play Matt Short, the middle sibling who can’t catch a break. Recently, a failed career has forced him back home with his parents.

Additionally, Angelique Cabral (Enlisted) has been cast as Colleen, the woman Matt has just fallen in love with who is stuck in a messy break-up with her ex-fiancé.

Justin Adler (Better Off Ted) will pen the pilot, with Aaron Kaplan (The Mysteries of Laura) serving as executive producer.

    I’m looking forward to this series. The cast seems great.

    CBS really wants another HIT family comedy like Everybody Love’s Raymond and all of ABC family comedies but if they just put cheap jokes about bowel movements, it’s going to crash and burn like The Millers and The McCarthy’s which was slightly better

    Sadoski is gold. I will watch anything with Don Keefer in it.
