LOS ANGELES - March 12, 2014 - Television icon, talk show host and comedic bestselling author Alan Thicke ("Growing Pains," "How I Met Your Mother"), one of Hollywood's most famous dads on- and off-screen, will star in UNUSUALLY THICKE, a 14-episode original reality sitcom for TVGN premiering on Wednesday, April 16 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT.

UNUSUALLY THICKE puts the spotlight on a real-life modern family - Alan, his beautiful, spicy and much younger wife Tanya, and his dry-witted, often opinionated 16-year-old son Carter - in a series that follows the fun and humor that happens in their everyday lives.

Dozens of special appearances from Alan's friends and family are featured throughout the season, including: his son and Grammy Award-winning recording artist Robin Thicke, television star David Hasselhoff ("Knight Rider" and "Baywatch"), television star and comedian Bob Saget ("Full House"), NBA basketball legend Magic Johnson, NHL all-star Wayne Gretzky, TV star and former teen idol John Stamos ("Full House"), talk show host and political commentator/comedian Bill Maher ("Politically Incorrect"), actor/writer/producer and talk show host Tom Green ("The Tom Green Show"), and many more.

"UNUSUALLY THICKE combines my two favorite things: family... and laughing at my family," remarked Alan. "This series is my foray into the 'reality-ish' television world where viewers will meet the lovable, unpredictable, and often challenging people who live with the real Jason Seaver. We take our relatable real-life stories and blow them up to amuse and amaze, tossing in a handful of celebrity friends along the way. Please come aboard and enjoy the ride!"

"Alan's real-life persona is just as likable, engaging and funny as the television characters he's played over the years, and we're excited to bring viewers an original reality sitcom featuring his real-life modern family," said Brad Schwartz, President, Entertainment and Media, TVGN. "This is Alan Thicke in the role of his life."

UNUSUALLY THICKE is an original series that blend reality television with situation comedy. The series is produced by Peacock Alley Entertainment.
