DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, November 2013) Single father George Altman (Jeremy Sisto) was doing his best to raise his sixteen-year-old daughter Tessa (Jane Levy) in the big city. But when he discovered a box of condoms in her bedroom, he moved her to a more wholesome and nurturing environment: the suburbs. Only behind the beautiful homes and perfect lawns of Chatswin lurk the Franken-moms and Red Bull-guzzling teens who have nothing in common with Tessa and George. It's a whole new world, one that makes George wonder if they haven't jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire. In seasons one and two, with the help of suburbanites like flirty hot mom Dallas (Cheryl Hines), alpha neighbors Sheila and Fred Shay (Ana Gasteyer and Chris Parnell), and awkward classmate Lisa (Allie Grant), George and Tessa learned to navigate the pitfalls of suburban life. With time, they realized life in Chatswin wasn't so bad. Once you got past the plastic smell. This season, George and Tessa find themselves more at odds with bucolic Chatswin than ever before. George struggles to once again navigate life as a single suburban dad after a tumultuous breakup with Dallas. While Tessa, abandoned by her mother at the start of her senior year, no longer has any interest in trying to fit in. So she and George recommit to walking amongst the suburban hordes without becoming them. Only Chatswin's pull is stronger than they anticipated. Elsewhere, after the Shays' beloved son Ryan heads off to college, they welcome an unexpected new addition to the family, one that is a new thorn in Lisa's side. Luckily, she can focus her attention on Malik as they take their relationship to new heights. And Dallas deals with both the loss of a relation and her relationship with George. But no one suffers from the break-up more than Dalia (According to Dalia). And it only amplifies her feud with Tessa. And when a new, calm Noah (Alan Tudyk) emerges after intensive anger management therapy, it enrages George. The show stars Jeremy Sisto as George Altman, Jane Levy as Tessa Altman, Cheryl Hines as Dallas Royce, Allie Grant as Lisa Shay, Ana Gasteyer as Sheila Shay, Chris Parnell as Fred Shay, and Carly Chaikin as Dalia Royce. Emily Kapnek ("Hung") writes and executive-produces this bitingly ironic single-camera comedy. Patricia Breen also writes and executive produces the series along with co-executive producer Andrew Guest. It is produced by Warner Bros. Television.
