[via press release from ABC]

ABC TO PREMIERE �SONS & DAUGHTERS� ON TUESDAY, MARCH 7

ABC�s new comedy �Sons & Daughters� will air back-to-back episodes Tuesdays at 9:00 and 9:30 p.m., ET, beginning March 7, it was announced today by the Network.

�I love this show. Nick and Fred have created a provocative, hilarious, emotional, real look at that dysfunctional joyride we know and love called family,� said Stephen McPherson, president, ABC Entertainment.

Editors please note: �Commander In Chief� will go on a brief broadcast hiatus so that it can return in the spring with all original episodes.

Fred Goss (�Significant Others�) stars in �Sons & Daughters,� a unique hybrid comedy series that offers a mix of improvisational and scripted humor in an unadulterated look at marriage, raising children and living in close proximity to an extended family. Series creators Goss and Nick Holly borrow from their own middle-American, middle-class upbringings to deliver a very real and relatable modern-day family comedy.

At the center of the family dynamic is Cameron (Goss), happily married to his second wife, Liz (Gillian Vigman, �Mad TV�), and the father of three children with her. One of the speed bumps on their road to domestic bliss comes from Cameron�s resentful teenaged son from his first marriage, who recently moved in and is not adjusting well to life with his father and new step-family.

Cameron�s life is further complicated by his sister, Sharon (Alison Quinn), and her husband, Don (Jerry Lambert), seemingly happily married with two teenaged children -- yet both in deep denial on several issues, including a current years-long sex drought.

Cameron and Sharon�s very pretty younger stepsister, Jenna (Amanda Walsh) -- the �it girl� when she was in high school -- had her career plans derailed by becoming a single mom. She continues to be attracted to �bad� boys like Tommy White, AKA Whitey (Greg Pitts), and not to the nice guys -- like Wylie (Desmond Harrington) -- who are attracted to her.

The three siblings� parents, Colleen (Dee Wallace) and Wendal (Max Gail), are extremely devoted to their adult children and their grandchildren but, not surprisingly, have some issues of their own. Colleen, a little uptight and impulsively judgmental, both likes and dislikes the safe and comfortable environment that husband Wendal has provided for 25 years. A good guy, Wendal juggles and struggles with the varied relationships he has with his extended family members.

�Sons & Daughters� stars Fred Goss as Cameron Walker, Gillian Vigman as Liz Walker, Jerry Lambert as Don Fenton, Alison Quinn as Sharon Fenton, Max Gail as Wendal Halbert, Dee Wallace as Colleen Halbert, Amanda Walsh as Jenna Halbert, Desmond Harrington as Wylie Blake, Greg Pitts as Tommy White, Eden Sher as Carrie Fenton, Randy Wayne as Jeff Fenton, Trevor Einhorn as Henry Walker, Lois Hall as Aunt Rae, Noah Matthews as Ezra Walker and Lexi Jourden as Marni Walker.

Executive producers are multi-Emmy Award-winning producer Lorne Michaels (�Saturday Night Live�), JoAnn Alfano (�The Tracy Morgan Show�), Fred Goss and Nick Holly. The pilot was co-written by Fred Goss and Nick Holly. �Sons & Daughters� is from NBC Universal Television Studio and Lorne Michaels� Broadway Video Television.
