A SINGLE DAD AND HIS TEENAGE DAUGHTER GO INTO CULTURE SHOCK
WHEN THEY MOVE TO THE 'BURBS, ON ABC'S "SUBURGATORY"
"Pilot" -- When single dad George moves 16-year-old daughter Tessa out of their NYC apartment to a house in the suburbs, it's because he wants a better place for her to spend her teen years. Tessa and George have been on their own ever since Tessa's mom pulled a "Kramer vs. Kramer." So far George has done a pretty good job of raising Tessa, but lately he's feeling a little out of his league, especially after he finds a pack of condoms in her room. So it's goodbye New York City and hello suburbs. At first Tessa is horrified by the big-haired, fake-boobed mothers and their sugar-free, Red Bull-chugging kids. But she and her dad slowly begin to find ways to survive, and while being in the 'burbs certainly can be hell, it also may just bring Tessa and George closer than they've ever been, on "Suburgatory," FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
