(from NBC's press release) Wildlife Park is home to hundreds of rare and exotic animal species, but it's the employees who steal the show. There's Jim, the head zookeeper, who's great with animals, but bad with people. And there's his brother Dave, who's great with people, but bad with animals. When Dave takes a job running the park with their father, Jim and Dave become instantly at odds with one another, vying for their father's attention as well as their co-worker Missy's affection. This is an endearing series where laughs are on display right next to real-life animals.
