ordered to pilot
(from ABC's press release, April 2011) Being a mom is a tough job - which is why Julia (Jenna Elfman) has let her mother (Frances Conroy) handle raising her kids for her. But when grandma decides to get a life, Julia and her husband Ted (Tom Everett Scott) are thrust onto the front lines of parenting. And there are some serious moments of doubt that they'll make it through alive. Let's be frank: Julia Lacey is not a good mother. But if you had to deal with the job stresses that she faces, you'd have trouble remembering where you left your kids, too: was it her friend's house, the indoor playroom, or karate class? That's why when she had children, she decided that she wanted them brought up the way she was, by her perfect mother, Marian. But when Marian finds love and wants a break from taking care of eleven-year-old Rose (Lizze Broadway) and eight-year-old Kirk (Aidan Potter), Julia and her hapless husband Ted have to scramble to get a hold on the whole parenting thing all by themselves. Too bad they just keep making one outrageous mistake after another, like when Julia bribes a waiter at a Chinese restaurant to babysit. Okay, so it may take time before Julia wins mother of the year, but at least she's trying. And it turns out that her totally perfect mother may not have been so perfect after all - just ask her the real reason why Julia lost her fingertip as a child. Perfect is overrated, anyway; being good enough will just have to be ... well, good enough. Executive producing with Aaron Kaplan (Terra Nova), British writer Sharon Horgan (Pulling) draws on the bittersweet lessons she learned from her own parenting experiences to create this outrageous, goodhearted comedy.
