DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) TV favorite Michael J. Fox knows exactly how it feels when a personal star sets... and a celebrity comes home to stay. Blending his first-hand experience with his first loves– comedy and hockey – Michael has created an endearing alter ego named Terry Hench. With the last body-check safely behind him, pro hockey legend Hench finds himself retired and homebound with psychologist wife, Kay, and three growing kids. After years of absentee fatherhood, Hench is determined to make amends. He vows that he'll assume his rightful place as head of household – a full-time stay-at-home dad who takes the lead in rearing his brood. Well, Hench may be a legend on the ice – but he's a rookie when it comes to kids. And when the principal slams daughter Ally into the penalty box for fighting on the bus, and first-born son Jake wants to trade his hockey skates for figure skates, well, Hench is going to have to learn new moves. Can a retired forward score a hat trick on home ice?
