So the new fall line ups are beginning and I stumbled upon this show last night. After watching the trailer I could see that I was not the target demographic but still I decided to push on, this was nothing to do with the pretty ladies, ok maybe a little.
This situation comedy revolves around Kate Harrison (Malin Åkerman) a former party girl who ends up marrying a man (Bradley Whitford) whom she met after crashing into him in a karaoke bar. Sounds simple enough, but she now has to deal with his two very different ex wives and his 3 children.
So this is a fish out of water story, party princess turned proper parent, it has the usual hi-jinks and laughs that we come to expect from this sort of series, but I have only seen the pilot, this one has a lot of potential, keep an eye on it, it may surprise you.
The cast is pretty solid as well –
Malin Åkerman (The Watchmen and Rock of ages) as Kate Harrison
Bradley Whitford (The West Wing and Cabin in the woods) as Pete
Michaela Watkins ( Wanderlust and former SNL) as Jackie
Natalie Morales (The middle man, Parks and Rec and the Newsroom) as Meg
Ryan Lee (Super 8) as Nelson
Albert Tsai (How I met your Mother) as Bert
Bailee Madison (Holliston and just go with it) as Hillary
