DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, March 2012) Annie (Mandy Moore) comes from a completely normal family. They're dysfunctional, needy, high maintenance, self-absorbed, non-confrontational, and have absolutely no regard for boundaries. And now that she's moved back home, Annie's landed herself smack-dab in the middle of all the family chaos. Newlyweds Annie and Ben have just relocated to Southern California to pursue an amazing opportunity - running one of LA's hippest and most talked about new restaurants. But before they can even get the doors open, Annie gets sucked into her family's dramas. Her older sister Kate, who's always perfect, is having a meltdown because she's overwhelmed by her new baby. Sarah, her younger sister, has just gone through a divorce and is reverting to her hard-partying high school ways. Zach, her slacker baby brother has just moved in "temporarily", which is code for permanently. And her meddling mother expects everyone to drop what they're doing to pose for a family portrait. Yep, just a completely normal family, who's pulling Annie in a million different directions. Now, instead of trying to please everybody, Annie's challenge will be learning to say one little word... no. From executive producers Shawn Levy (the Night at the Museum franchise, Real Steel, Date Night, The Pink Panther), Marty Adelstein & Becky Clements (Last Man Standing), and Bob Fisher & Stacy Traub (Notes from the Underbelly, Kitchen Confidential) comes a new comedy about how to survive your family drama without going crazy.
