DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, March 2014) Francis Quinlan (Michael Imperioli) is a rock in the community with old-fashioned values and a no-nonsense style, just like the neighborhood bar he owns with his family. This Long Island cop has been married for 19 years to Stephanie and has two kids, Jack and Kimberly. Since his father died, he's been taking care of his mother and picking up the slack for his single siblings, Tommy and Heather, who don't share his work ethic. Tommy is more interested in playing video games with his nephew than holding down a job or helping out. Francis even had to take on a partner, Peter, to run the bar. 29 year-old Heather, usually the slightly more responsible of the two siblings, announces she is pregnant. Francis hits the roof; he doesn't want Heather condemned for eternity and is determined to get her married before his mother finds out. With this baby on the way, and no dad in sight, Francis will butt heads with the modern world and everyone around him in this comedy about family drama.
