(from ABC's press release, March 2015) Gary and Irene's eight-year-old son, Gus, is not exactly a chip off the old block. Gary, a geriatric physician, is intellectual and conflict-averse. His Tony-awardwinning wife, Irene (Megan Hilty), gave up her glamorous Broadway life to raise their son in the suburbs, which she's perfectly content with - so long as she has an excuse to dress up in costume or burst into song every now and then. Somehow this combination of intellect and drama has produced a fiercely competitive and athletically-inclined alpha male, August (named after the great playwright August Strindberg), who prefers to go by "Gus." In Gus's world everything is a competition, with a clear winner and loser, whether it's brushing his teeth, eating dinner, or even peeing. Unfortunately, Gus does not share many of Gary's interests, including a Legobuilding contest which Gary considers not only to be a family tradition, but a wonderful way for him and his son to "connect." Pun intended... The Lego team also includes Gary's opportunistic twin sister, Susie, and her husband Ty, another natural athlete. Ty and Gus's mutual love of sports makes Gary a bit jealous, especially since he already feels like his connection with his son has fallen into jeopardy when Irene signed Gus up for the soccer team. Although the only thing Gary knows about soccer is that he doesn't like it, he'll stray out of his comfort zone to support his son. Gary is assigned to referee Gus's game, while Irene, determined to play the part of "Queen of the Soccer Moms," volunteers to handle snacks. She enlists the help of her gay Greek chorus - the Three Bears: Jose Luis, Danny and Rusty - whose idea of appropriate soccer game snacks is white sangria and Barefoot Contessainspired cupcakes. On Gary's first day as referee he becomes disillusioned by Gus's overly competitive behavior on the field and bans his son from the game after he makes a teammate cry. Gary then butts heads with the equally competitive Coach Rob, who is half-soccer coach, half-drill sergeant. Adding fuel to the fire, Irene's fabulous soccer snacks don't go over as well as she had hoped - the sangria and sugar filled cupcakes should have been juice boxes and granola bars. Why can't they fit in as easily as their son? But ultimately, Gary and Irene realize that it's about understanding their son rather than understanding sports. They accept him for who he is, as he loves and accepts them for who they are - the most unconventional parents on the block. Writer Judah Miller (American Dad, King of the Hill) executive produces with Tom Lassally (Silicon Valley) and Jonathan Berry.
