Production Begins in Los Angeles on the Sixth Season of ABC's Hit Comedy Series, "According to Jim" Airing During the 2006-07 Television Season

[via press release from ABC]


Production has begun in Los Angeles on the sixth season of ABC's �According to Jim.� In this earthy family comedy, Jim (Jim Belushi) is the macho �Everyman� who challenges his gorgeous and feisty wife Cheryl (Courtney Thorne-Smith) with his stubborn manliness but contagious charm. Tagging along with this duo of happily married opposites are their three precocious kids, Ruby (Taylor Atelian), Gracie (Billi Bruno) and Kyle (Conner Rayburn). The sixth season of �According to Jim� will air in the 2006-07 television season.

A success at his construction business and the family breadwinner at home, Jim feeds his other passion -- blues music -- playing with his six-man garage band. He keeps Cheryl in turmoil with his boyish bravado and ever-willful antics, but their underlying love guarantees that they are in this marriage for keeps.

At the conclusion of last season, Cheryl's sister Dana (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and her husband Ryan (Mitch Rouse) announced that Dana was pregnant. This season, as Jim and Cheryl eagerly await the arrival of the new family member, Jim continues to offer his trademark advice on all subjects -- solicited or not.

Jim's brother-in-law Andy (Larry Joe Campbell) continues to clumsily cruise for chicks for whom he is filled with audacious adulation. The inevitable slaps and drinks in the face only make him more determined in his quest for Ms. Right. And as Jim�s closest friend, he still covers for the latter's conniving capers, all to Cheryl�s chagrin.

�According to Jim� stars Jim Belushi as Jim, Courtney Thorne-Smith as Cheryl, Kimberly Williams-Paisley as Dana, Larry Joe Campbell as Andy, Taylor Atelian as Ruby, Billi Bruno as Gracie and Conner Rayburn as Kyle.

Executive producers are Jim Belushi, Suzanne Bukinik, Jonathan Stark, Marc Gurvitz, John D. Beck and Ron Hart. �According to Jim� is from Touchstone Television in association with Brad Grey Television.
