Kaitlin Olson's Fox Comedy The Mick Sets Post-NFL January Premiere

The Mick has secured one heck of a lead-in.

Kaitlin Olson’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia follow-up will premiere on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017 at 8/7c after the NFL doubleheader, Fox announced Wednesday.

The following Tuesday, Jan. 3, the comedy will make its timeslot premiere at 8:30.

In the series, Olson plays Mackenzie “Mickey” Murphy, described by the network as “a hapless mess, a wry-humored, hard-drinking, cigarette-smoking, living-large kind of gal, always ‘between’ jobs, and always broke. A scrappy survivor who’s run out of options, she decides to pay her rich sister a visit, hoping for a little handout. What she gets, instead, is a full-time baby-sitting gig, when her sister and husband are forced to flee the country” to avoid a federal indictment.

Sofia Black D’Elia (The Night Of), Thomas Barbusca (American Horror Story), Carla Jimenez (Last Man Standing) and newcomers Jack Stanton and Scott MacArthur co-star.

    She is leaving Sunny? How? Why? That show is amazing.

    Wasn’t this just about the plot of Melissa & Joey? Except in that one, the parents go to jail, and in this, they flee the country.

  3. Phil says:

    That went from totally off my radar to making me laugh out loud. I’m in!

    Sounds like Melissa and Joey, except she sounds like a hot mess, and that’s great.
