ordered to pilot
(from ABC's press release, April 2017) Jason Biggs is the loveable, eager-to-please Charlie Taylor. He is from a military family - but while his father earned a purple heart in Vietnam and his fearless brother Joe is about to be deployed to Iraq -- Charlie plays a different role in the Army: he's a dentist. His cautious nature makes him better at giving out advice on flossing than commanding the troops (or tending to his dating life). He's the opposite of his mother, Sue, a sharp-tongued widow who even her sons will admit is "not nice". She disapproves of Joe's fiancé Angelina, a headstrong single mom who plays by her own rules. Together with her two teenage misfits, Maria and Hector, she brings a little chaos in to Charlie, Joe and Sue's regimented life on base at Fort Bragg. Before he deploys, Joe asks Charlie to watch out for Angelina and her kids. It's a solemn promise, and one he clearly expects Charlie to keep. Unbeknownst to Charlie, he asks the same thing of Angelina: watch over his brother, who could use a little help himself. In Joe's absence, the family has to pull together to make sure the kids stay on track, Sue and Angelina get along, and Charlie becomes a hero in his own right.
