DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, March 2018) This family comedy follows four adults in three houses raising three kids after two divorces... and ultimately forming one big, weird family. At the center of the show are nouveau hippy Bea (Ginnifer Goodwin) who recently left her happily misanthropic ex-husband Louie (Barry Rothbart) and is moving in with Paul (Kyle Bornheimer), an elementary school teacher who is eager to be with someone who is nice to him after being recently left by his ex, the driven, high-powered Genevieve (Ryan Michelle Bathe). As the boundaries blur amongst these families, they will see that it really does take a village to raise these kids in their new, more complicated lives (even if the village citizens end up in some uncomfortable scenarios). Based on the Swedish format by the same name
