CHRISTOPHER MELONI RETURNS TO BROADCAST TELEVISION IN THE SERIES PREMIERE OF "SURVIVING JACK" THURSDAY, MARCH 27, ON FOX

Based on Best-Selling Author Justin Halpern's Autobiographical Book, "I Suck at Girls"

Set in the 1990s, SURVIVING JACK is about a man becoming a dad, as his son is becoming a man, in a time before "coming of age" was something you could Google. JACK DUNLEVY (Emmy Award nominee Christopher Meloni, "True Blood," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"), ex-military and an oncologist, is a no-bull kind of guy. But after years of deftly raising and running the family, his wife, JOANNE (Rachael Harris, "Suits," NEW GIRL, "The Hangover"), is starting law school, leaving Jack as a full-time parent for the very first time. Jack's teenage son, FRANKIE (Connor Buckley, "Deception"), is just starting his freshman year in high school. His daughter, RACHEL (Claudia Lee, "Kick-Ass 2," "Hart of Dixie"), is a gorgeous and super-smart 17-year-old high school junior. In addition to disciplining his own children, Jack must look out for Frankie's best friends: GEORGE (Kevin Hernandez, "The Sitter"), an overly confident Mexican-American with a big vocabulary; and MIKEY (newcomer Tyler Foden), a tough kid from a broken home.
