DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, May 2013) Marty Weaver just wanted the best for his wife, Debbie, and their three kids, and moving from an apartment in Bayonne to Hidden Hills, New Jersey, a gated community complete with its own golf course, was a step in the right direction. Of course, the fact that the entire community is comprised of aliens from the planet Zabvron, and that the Weavers are the first humans who have lived amongst them, presents some challenges. But as the Weavers and the aliens face the struggles of everyday life together, they discover that some things - the ups and downs of marriage, the desire to be a good parent and connect with your children - are universal... intergalactic even. Despite the fact that they're not even the same species, both humans and Zabvronians had a lot to learn from each other. The Weavers realize they've found an ally in the family next door... even if they do cry out of their ears. "The Neighbors" stars Jami Gertz as Debbie Weaver, Lenny Venito as Marty Weaver, Simon Templeman as Larry Bird, Toks Olagundoye as Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Clara Mamet as Amber Weaver, Tim Jo as Reggie Jackson, Ian Patrick as Dick Butkus, Max Charles as Max Weaver and Isabella Cramp as Abby Weaver. "The Neighbors" was created by Dan Fogelman ("Cars," "Tangled," "Crazy, Stupid, Love"), who is also an executive producer with Aaron Kaplan ("GCB," "Terra Nova") and Chris Koch ("Workaholics," "Modern Family"). "The Neighbors" is from ABC Studios.
