(from ABC's web site, March 2009) ABC announces the premiere of new half-hour comedy series, Surviving Suburbia, starring Bob Saget and Cynthia Stevenson, on MONDAY, APRIL 6 (9:30-10:00 p.m., ET), following Dancing with the Stars. In the family-centered tradition of Roseanne and Home Improvement, Surviving Suburbia opens the curtain to follow Saget (How I Met Your Mother, Full House) and Stevenson (Men in Trees, Dead Like Me) as Steve and Anne Patterson, a seemingly normal couple who have been married for 20 years, have two children and a cookie cutter house in the idyllic suburbs. But Steve maintains a rather cynical point of view on family, friends, neighbors, society -- pretty much everyone and everything -- as he tries to survive suburban life. Surviving Suburbia takes a contemporary look at family life and the reasons one might have to question the system -- How does exchanging keys with a neighbor for emergencies result in house sitting? Why do kids' classroom projects inevitably become the parents' responsibility? When did we start needing mediators to handle disagreements between adults? all of which goes to prove that it's never just another sunny day in the suburbs. Also starring in the half-hour comedy series are Jared Kuznitz (Otis, Dance of the Dead) and G Hannelius (Interrogation) as the Patterson kids. Jere Burns (Good Morning Miami, Something So Right) and Dan Cortese (What I Like About You) are recurring guest stars. Surviving Suburbia is produced by Media Rights Capital. Kevin Abbott (Reba, Roseanne, Grace Under Fire) and Acme Productions' Michael Hanel & Mindy Schultheis (Rita Rocks, The War at Home, Reba, Titus) are executive producers. Thirteen episodes have been shot.
