SCOTT BAIO MAKES LONG-AWAITED HOMECOMING TO PRIMETIME TV IN NICK AT NITE'S BRAND-NEW COMEDY, "SEE DAD RUN," PREMIERING SUNDAY, OCT. 14, AT 8 P.M. (ET/PT)

Santa Monica, Calif. - Sept. 18, 2012 - Nick at Nite will premiere its brand-new live-action family comedy executive produced by and starring Scott Baio, See Dad Run on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). A multi-camera scripted half-hour, the series follows David Hobbs (Baio) an actor who, after ten years of starring as America's favorite TV dad, becomes a stay-at-home father while his soap star wife (Alanna Ubach, Legally Blonde) makes her return to the limelight. Mark Curry (Hangin' with Mr. Cooper) also stars as David's friend, Marcus. Nick at Nite will air the pilot of See Dad Run on Saturday, Oct. 6 at 9p.m. (ET/PT), with the series airing regularly on Sundays at 8p.m. (ET/PT).

"The proven comic appeal of Scott Baio combined with a stellar production team to create a funny, modern relatable family sitcom fits perfectly into Nick's prime time strategy of entertaining every member of the family," explains Marjorie Cohn, Nickelodeon's President, Content Development. "We at Nick are thrilled to add this funny show to our arsenal!"

See Dad Run features David Hobbs who has spent the last decade playing the perfect father on one of TV's biggest sitcoms. But when the series ends and his wife resumes her own television career, he finds himself cast in his most challenging role to date: handling the day-to-day needs of three kids who've grown accustomed to not having him around. David soon learns that playing a dad on TV is child's play compared to the real thing. In the premiere episode, "See Dad Lose Janie," David runs into a hiccup with his stay-at-home dad responsibilities when he misplaces Janie (Bailey Michelle Brown) and must scramble to get her back before Amy finds out. Rounding out the cast are Ryan Newman (Zeke and Luther) as David's oldest daughter, Emily and Jackson Brundage (One Tree Hill) as David's son, Joe. Additionally, Ramy Youssef plays David's assistant, Kevin.

In support of the Oct. 14 premiere, NickatNite.com has launched its See Dad Run show site, which includes trailers, character information, sneak peek photo galleries and message boards as well as a "Which Hobbs Kid Are You?" quiz . Full episodes will also be made available after each premiere. Beginning October 7, the first episode of See Dad Run will be available for streaming on Nick On Demand and Nick@Nite On Demand and downloadable on iTunes, PlayStation, Xbox, Amazon and Vudu. Viewers can keep up with the show on Twitter by following the Nick@Nite page at @nickatnitetv and by liking the Nick@Nite Facebook page.

The series is executive produced by Baio and comes from creators/executive producers Tina Albanese and Patrick Labyorteaux with executive producers Nat Bernstein and Mitchel Katlin serving as showrunners. Eric Bischoff and Jason Hervey also serve as executive producers through their production company Bischoff Hervey Entertainment (BHE). See Dad Run marks Hervey and Baio's return to scripted comedy, with BHE having previously collaborated on three acclaimed unscripted series including Scott Baio is 45 and Single, Scott Baio is 46 and Pregnant and Confessions of a Teen Idol.

For over 30 years, Baio has been a beloved actor, successful producer, writer and director. He received his acting break in 1976 when he was cast as the lead in the youthful gangster film Bugsy Malone. Baio is perhaps best known for his role as Chachi Arcola on one of television's most iconic comedy series Happy Days, followed by a starring role in the spin-off series Joanie Loves Chachi. Baio also starred in his own 1980s hit sitcom, Charles in Charge. Following his television comedy roles, he delved into some deeper and more dramatic roles, such as in the award-winning ABC after-school special, Stoned, the CBS film The Boy Who Drank Too Much and as a hemophiliac in NBC's Senior Trip! He continued his acting career as the youthful associate of Dick Van Dyke on the successful CBS series Diagnosis Murder and a decade later, made several appearances on the Emmy Award-winning television series Arrested Development. Most recently, Baio was featured as himself on VH1's popular series, Scott Baio is 45... and Single and Scott Baio is 46... and Pregnant. Off-screen, he has directed episodes of popular series including The Parkers, Unhappily Ever After, The Jamie Foxx Show, The Wayans Bros., Harry and the Hendersons, Out of This World and recently served as executive producer of VH1's Confessions of a Teen Idol.

Tina Albanese was a producer for several years on the popular prime time drama JAG, then left to start up CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. She began her career working for David E. Kelley on such hit series such as L.A. Law, Picket Fences and Chicago Hope. Patrick Labyorteaux is best known for his television roles as Andrew Garvey on Little House on the Prairie and Bud Roberts on JAG. Labyorteaux also starred in such popular films as Summer School, Heathers, Ski School, Blazing Saddles and most recently, Yes Man and 2012: Ice Age. He also made several guest appearances on such series as iCarly, Dexter, NCIS, Without a Trace, Yes, Dear and Ghost Whisperer.

Bernstein and Katlin have been writing and producing partners for over twenty-five years. After their first collaboration on the feature film Opportunity Knocks starring Dana Carvey, they began working in series television, producing Doogie Howser, M.D., writing over 25 episodes, as well as Ally McBeal and Baby Boom. They have since gone on to create several network television series, including Bringing Up Jack and Over The Top for ABC, Cursed for NBC, Abby for UPN, as well as The Gregory Hines Show and Center of The Universe for CBS.

Eric Bischoff and Jason Hervey's Bischoff Hervey Entertainment Television LLC (BHE) launched in 2003 and since then, have produced television series and pilots for NBC, A&E, VH-1, CMT, E! and TruTV. Eric Bischoff has spent the last 23 years in the entertainment industry, producing over 2,500 hours of original programming (over half of it live), 79 pay-per-view events, 1,500 live events around the world and his book "Controversy Creates Cash" made the New York Times Best Seller list in the fall of 2007. He is also featured alongside Hulk Hogan on Spike TV's weekly prime time series iMPACT. Hervey is best known for the role of Wayne Arnold in the Emmy Award-winning hit series The Wonder Years. From this platform and experience, Hervey was able to leverage opportunities behind the camera as he began a career in producing. His first project was at the age of 17 when he created, starred in and produced the Saturday morning series Wide World of Kids. Subsequently, Hervey partnered with former Sony of America CEO Peter Guber in Mandalay Sports Action Entertainment, (MSAE) where he spearheaded a partnership with Time Warner's World Championship Wrestling (WCW) which yielded 17 original productions in television, home video and pay-per view, an original soundtrack with Tommy Boy records and four television movies for TBS and TNT.

Nick at Nite is Nickelodeon's nighttime programming block that features popular hit family comedies including the Emmy Award-winning series Friends, My Wife & Kids, George Lopez, The Nanny and most recently, Yes, Dear.
