STATUS:

DEVELOPMENT STAGE:
ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, April 2017) Lena and Martin have finally made the decision to divorce. The romance has died, as well as the sex, and they have become more like camp counselors for their three children 13 year-old Mae, 11 year-old Mason, and 7 yearold Milo. Lena's sister Maya, her parents Henry and Alma, and best friends Arthur and Camille are surprised by the news and confused when they find out that the couple will still live together. They wonder what will happen when they start to date other people. Their arrangement is unusual: Lena and Martin will live in separate parts of the house, and split up parenting duties on a weekly basis. On the 'off-duty week' that parent lives in the garage and is free to do whatever he or she wants. The kids seem to go with the flow, at least at first. Lena, the supermom control freak, is just waiting for Martin to be overwhelmed by the household and kid duties, but is surprised when he isn't. Not that everything is perfect. During Lena's on-duty week, Martin is touched that she comes to him for help, something that never has happened before. As the couple starts to see each other in a different light, they realize this divorce could be the best thing for their marriage. Based on the Danish series Splitting Up Together, writer Emily Kapnek (Suburgatory, Selfie) executive producers with Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman.
