ABC ANNOUNCES NEW COMEDY, "SURVIVING SUBURBIA," TO PREMIERE MONDAY, APRIL 6

Series Starring Bob Saget and Cynthia Stevenson Will Air Mondays at 9:30 p.m., Following "Dancing with the Stars"

ABC announces the premiere of new half-hour comedy series, "Surviving Suburbia," starring Bob Saget and Cynthia Stevenson, on MONDAY, APRIL 6 (9:30-10:00 p.m., ET), following "Dancing with the Stars."

In the family-centered tradition of "Roseanne" and "Home Improvement," "Surviving Suburbia" opens the curtain to follow Saget ("How I Met Your Mother," "Full House") and Stevenson ("Men in Trees," "Dead Like Me") as Steve and Anne Patterson, a seemingly normal couple who have been married for 20 years, have two children and a cookie cutter house in the idyllic suburbs. But Steve maintains a rather cynical point of view on family, friends, neighbors, society -- pretty much everyone and everything -- as he tries to survive suburban life. "Surviving Suburbia" takes a contemporary look at family life and the reasons one might have to question the system -- How does exchanging keys with a neighbor for emergencies result in house sitting? Why do kids' classroom projects inevitably become the parents' responsibility? When did we start needing mediators to handle disagreements between adults? � all of which goes to prove that it's never just another sunny day in the suburbs.

Also starring in the half-hour comedy series are Jared Kuznitz ("Otis," "Dance of the Dead") and G Hannelius ("Interrogation") as the Patterson kids. Jere Burns ("Good Morning Miami," "Something So Right") and Dan Cortese ("What I Like About You") are recurring guest stars.

"Surviving Suburbia" is produced by Media Rights Capital. Kevin Abbott ("Reba," "Roseanne," "Grace Under Fire") and Acme Productions' Michael Hanel & Mindy Schultheis ("Rita Rocks," "The War at Home," "Reba," "Titus") are executive producers. Thirteen episodes have been shot.
