DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, March 2012) "I do." When Judy Jennings (Judy Greer) said those two little words, her life went down the rabbit hole. Suddenly Judy became an instant stepmom to two kids. Oh, Judy... be afraid, be very afraid. Judy left the excitement of city life to join her husband Dean in the 'burbs, only to find her world completely turned upside down. Forget the lack of upscale boutiques or cultural events; Judy didn't realize she married into a family with some seriously fuzzy boundaries. Dean's Double-D ex-wife, the tough-talking town Sheriff (Elaine Hendrix), drops in unannounced, to shower after her workouts. Her stepson, Chuck Norris (named by The Sheriff, of course) surprises Judy at the most inopportune moments. And her mother-in-law, Judy "One" (Mimi Kennedy), raids the fridge whenever she feels like it and judges her parenting skills. Judy's clearly out of her element and feels like small town hospitality isn't always hospitable. Finding a friend may take some time, but until then, she's always got her family. From executive producers Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont (Made of Honor, Surviving Christmas, Can't Hardly Wait), Ira Ungerleider (How I Met Your Mother, Friends), and David Gardner, Peter Principato, and Paul Young (Reno 911!), and director Beth McCarthy-Miller (30 Rock, Up All Night), comes this hilariously quirky new comedy about feeling like a fish out of water in your own family.
