MAN OF THE HOUSE (ABC)
DEVELOPMENT HISTORY:

STATUS:
currently in development (2018-2019 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE:
ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, March 2018) Inspired by writer Frank Pines' real life, this multi/single-camera hybrid family comedy centers on two recentlydivorced, very different, sisters who, against their better judgment, move in together to raise their collective kids - two girls and one boy - under one roof in the suburbs of Miami. Jessie (Alyson Hannigan) is a sensitive social worker and overprotective mom to teen football star Bradley, and happy-because-she's-in-denial preteen Blair. Jessie's sister Charli is a beautiful, overly-confident, take-no-prisoners mom who gets her way with everyone, except maybe her beautiful teenage mini-me of a daughter, Elena. Our story begins when Jessie's husband unexpectedly dumps her, and she moves her kids in with her sister Charli, but what no one expects is that Charli immediately decides to kick-out her own husband, creating a new blended family where, no matter how much they irritate each other, they love and need one another, and are all going to be better off. Sure, her whole life Charli has always been the "alpha" with Jessie (and with everyone else), and she's certain her ways of parenting (and doing everything, frankly) are superior, but the big secret is that softie Jessie is actually the rock of this family. These two sisters are going to lean on each other more than ever to raise these kids and, as Bradley oscillates between the hyper-male world of high school football and the hyper-female world at home, this group of women is going to teach him how to be a better man, whether he likes it or not.
