DESCRIPTION:
(from The WB's press release) Holly Robinson Peete ("For Your Love") returns to The WB in this multi-ethnic crossover comedy. When two families ' one black, one white ' share the same house, they discover that their differences are definitely more than skin deep. Tanya (Peete), Ed (Kevin Michael Richardson, "Lilo and Stitch," "The PJs"), and their kids, 16-year-old Danika (Megalyn Echikunwoke, "24") and 12-year-old Bobby (newcomer B.J. Mitchell), are a middle-class African-American family who open their door for an old friend who needs parenting help. Juggling the demands of single parenthood, Maddie (Amy Yasbeck, "Wings") believes her 16-year-old son, Keith (newcomer J. Mack), could benefit from living in a traditional family structure, and especially from a strong male influence. Extra people in the house mean extra tension, extra laughs and the occasional blow-up as kids and grown-ups work together to combine their worlds and become one big, happy family. This semi-autobiographical family comedy from creator Dan Fogelman with executive producers Rick Wiener & Kenny Schwartz ("Mad About You," "Two Guys And A Girl," "Do Over") and Warren Littlefield ("Keen Eddie," "Do Over"), is from Warner Bros. Television Production Inc.
