(from ABC's press release, April 2013) Karey (Kelly Preston) is a happily married college graduate with no chemical dependencies or warrants so she's the black sheep of her family. As she likes to say, "Someone definitely peed in my gene pool." But with bad genes comes great responsibility... so when her brother Vince is sent to prison, she becomes the stay-at-home-mom to her brother's two kids. Destiny, a delinquent 15 year old and Joey a military obsessed 8 year old. She's also raising her son Arkel, an African American teenager she adopted along the way. Out of all Karey's kids, he does the best at school and is the easiest to get along with... probably because he's not blood related. Now, along with her British husband, John, Karey's trying to give these kids the normalcy they've never had. But normal doesn't come naturally to a family like this. Karey's mother Dotty (Jane Seymour) calls herself "The Liz Taylor of Valencia" - she's been married and divorced 5 times! She's the type of woman whose glass is always half full, and it is. Her brother Jeff is a bona-fide NINJA - No Income, No Job, no Assets. But unlike an actual Ninja, he is neither stealth nor quiet... turning Karey's living room into his bedroom and settling in as a permanent member of the family. Her narcissistic sister, Penny, believes herself to be a better parent than Karey, even though her "child" is a pampered Pomeranian named Vivian. Even though Norman Rockwell never painted a family like this... Karey is hellbent on making it work. But between Destiny stealing the car, Arkel teaching Joey Three Card Monte, and Joey digging foxholes in the front lawn - she has her hands full. This comedic, original and heart-warming series dives into the many challenges and rewards of adoption, redefining what it means to be a family and giving a voice to the millions of kids in foster care waiting for a "forever home." Inspired by actress and writer Andrea Abbate's (ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE, RUDE AWAKENINGS) real life, she's teamed up with producers Shawn Levy, Marty Adelstein (TEEN WOLF, LAST MAN STANDING, PRISON BREAK) & Becky Clements (LAST MAN STANDING) of 21 Laps/Adelstein and director Gail Mancuso (MODERN FAMILY) to bring you an outrageous comedy about a new kind of family with an odd sense of values: ADOPTED.
