STATUS: previously in development (2014-2015 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
ADDITIONAL NOTES: network passed on 5/9/14
DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, March 2014) Based on the family life, marriage and divorce of actor/comedian Kevin Hart, writers Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan (Community, Scrubs, Family Guy) explore the question: "Can a man and woman ever truly be friends... after they're divorced?" Derek (Romany Malco) and Lorraine (Bresha Webb) were high school sweethearts who married and started a family right away (they literally got married at their graduation party). Like any good divorced couple, they know how to push each other's buttons, especially as they start dating other people. Their two kids, 6-year-old Ruben and 11-year-old Nicole, are adjusting just fine to joint custody and to Derek's new girlfriend, Mircea (Amber Stevens). She's an exotic beauty who is smart enough to go with the flow when it comes to Lorraine... at least most of the time. But when Mircea teaches Derek's daughter how to braid her own hair, Lorraine is furious about losing a precious "mommy moment." In retaliation, she has her new boyfriend teach their son how to ride a bike. Derek can't believe that Lorraine manufactured a special "daddy moment" specifically so that he would miss it. He's all set for a confrontation with her new young boyfriend Chip (Jayson Blair), only to discover that he actually likes the guy. Not only does he like Chip, but he provides Derek with some thoughtful insights about having a healthy relationship with Lorraine that's based on friendship. Can Derek and Lorraine put their volatile past behind them and forge a friendship for the sake of their kids and their new significant others? They will certainly try.
