CHEVY - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Chevy Chase returns to primetime and reunites with Beverly D'Angelo, his costar of the National Lampoon Vacation movies. They are Chev and Bebe-two baby boomers loving retirement since they gave up their house and its trappings for life on the road in an RV. But everything changes when they are left to raise their three Gen Z grandchildren: Taylor (14), the nerdy-handsome magician; Hope (12), the beautiful, smart and slightly sullen middle child; and Elliot (4), the ridiculously cute one. The generation gap is as big and obvious as their RV, which is now parked in front of their new house in a gated community in a Los Angeles suburb. All the neighbors welcome them including former hippies Andy and Debbie Coker and their daughter, Dawn who attracts the attention of Taylor. Trying to reconcile their retirement with being parents again, they take on their grandkids' school drama, tree house drama, and allergy drama... with only a couple visits to the ER. But then there's Molly drama. Molly is Chev and Bebe's opinionated youngest daughter and the kids' aunt who comes to visit with her boyfriend Amir, a slacker med student. Molly stirs up doubt about her parents' ability to raise their grandkids. Whether they like it or not, she's going to stay and help out. But who can raise these kids with more love than Chev and Bebe? Even though they might make lots of mistakes, they'll make sure their golden years are golden years for their grandkids as well. Writer Brad Copeland (My Name is Earl, Arrested Development) executive produces with Aaron Kaplan (Secrets and Lies, Neighbors).

DELORES AND JERMAINE - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Jermaine (Jermaine Fowler) is the first person in his family to go to college... and also the first to drop out. Even though this idealistic millennial has big dreams of being, well, something really big, he just can't seem to get off his Dad's couch in the morning. When Jermaine is also fired from his fast-food job at Liver & Shakes, it's the last straw for his father who decides that the only way for Jermaine to finally grow up is for him to move out. Unfortunately, his mother won't let Jermaine stay with her and her brand new wife, so his last resort is his estranged grandmother, Delores (Whoopi Goldberg). Delores is unlike any grandmother you've ever seen. She's an outspoken woman who broke down barriers to become one of the first women on the DC police force back in the 80's. She's also an obsessive football fan and can't cook to save her life. Jermaine quickly learns that Grandma Delores is not afraid to lay down the law and she will use any means necessary if someone crosses her. Unlike Jermaine's father, Delores has no problem getting Jermaine off the couch with endless chores and her own brand of tough love... or as Jermaine sees it, hazing. In an effort to get his reclusive Grandmother off his back, Jermaine decides to get her out of the house and distract her with a fake football-loving boyfriend. Even though Grandma Delores initially enjoys herself for the first time in years, Jermaine's scheme ultimately backfires and she is hurt and disappointed in him. Jermaine is surprised to find that he feels true remorse and he decides to do something selfless for quite possibly the first time in his life. Based on comedian Jermaine Fowler's own life, this unorthodox buddy comedy showcases an unlikely pair from two different generations who quickly realize that they are better off together than apart. Fowler writes and produces alongside EPs Daniel Chun (The Office, The Simpsons), Kristin Newman (Galavant, How I Met Your Mother, That 70s Show ), Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Leonardis, Michael Rotenberg, and director Beth McCarthy-Miller (Saturday Night Live, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Modern Family).

DR. KEN - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Ken Jeong, former doctor turned comedian and actor (Community, The Hangover) plays Dr. Ken Park, a brilliant physician with no bedside manner. He calls an overweight patient 'fat' and dismisses patients' opinions about their own health as wrong. But he gets away with it because this #3 general practitioner in LA's San Fernando Valley is usually right. The person he vexes most at work is his clinic's manager and money guy Pat (Dave Foley). This former Circuit City manager doesn't see much difference between electronics and patients-he only sees dollar signs- and wishes Dr. Ken would prioritize profits over patients, like he does. One of his biggest cost saving jobs is stopping patients from suing because of Dr. Ken's bad bedside manner. Also part of the practice is Dr. Ken's match in the tell-it-like-it-is department, receptionist Damona (Tisha Campbell-Martin). She's not afraid to slow his roll. There's also his naïve and enthusiastic resident, Julie. She clearly has a lot of admiration for him, and in her shy way somehow manages to give him some good advice, especially when it comes to his kids. And then there's the loyal but somewhat dimwitted nurse Hector, who worships Dr. Ken, and is happy to jump aboard as Ken's partner in crime - whether Dr. Ken wants one or not. Keeping him sane at home is his wife, Allison (Suzy Nakamura), an artist turned therapist who has a Zen approach to her husband's crazy-making. She'll stand back and enjoy a Dr. Ken train wreck instead of trying to stop him or criticize him. He appreciates her being someone so unlike the ultra-strict father who raised him. However, despite being seen as the "sane one" of the couple, Allison also has her unhinged moments, "second hand crazy," she calls it, which she insists she gets from her husband. Ken and Allison have two children. 16-year-old Molly is testing every boundary like she should. Though she's already failed her driver's test (the only test this Korean father was happy for her to fail), she is trying again. She has left her nice friends behind and is hanging with the popular hottie, Avery. Even her little brother recognizes the danger in this. 9-year-old Dave (Albert Tsai) is super-smart and adorable. However, he's about to commit social suicide by miming Katy Perry's "Roar" in the upcoming school talent show. Ken tries to talk him into singing instead, but Dave wants to do something 'different.' Mom Allison is supportive, even though back in college, she was humiliated for her slam poetry, and tries to explain that to Dave. But this kid's gonna mime. He's as determined as his Dad sometimes. At work, Ken's posse helps him interpret Molly's cryptic texts, which he has secretly obtained. They all suspect she will be going to a rave instead of studying at Avery's house. They convince Dr. Ken to install the questionable DaughterTracker app to see where she goes. When they find out she is, in fact, at the rave, Hector gives Dr. Ken a ridiculous makeover in order to help him get into the club, find Molly, and take her home. But Dr. Ken's plans to help the kids escalate into near disaster both in the club with Molly and onstage at the talent show with Dave. But it's just like Dr. Ken to do whatever it takes to be a good dad and a good doctor. And Allison will be there for him when his well-placed intentions go wrong. Written by Ken Jeong, Jared Stern (Mr. Popper's Penguins), and Mike O'Connell. Executive produced by Ken Jeong, Mike Sikowitz (The McCarthys, Rules of Engagement) and Davis Entertainment's John Davis and John Fox ( The Blacklist).

FAMILY FORTUNE - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Fortune Ferguson (Fortune Feimster) has a lot going right in her life. She's a popular Health and Fitness Teacher in her hometown of Belmont, North Carolina and is surrounded by friends and family. But there's something missing in her life. Fortune's never had too much luck with guys. As Fortune herself puts it love, companionship - all that dumb crap - has eluded her. Things come to a head during Fortune's 28th birthday celebration at a local margarita bar. Cajoled into doing body shots off a hot bartender by her overbearing mom Ginger (Annie Potts), Fortune has a moment of total clarity. As she tells the bar: she's gay. As gay as all hell, y'all. Fortune's public revelation sends shockwaves through her Southern family. Ginger is astonished, but then quickly accepts Fortune's gayness. Maybe too much. Within a day she's plastered her house with rainbow flags and posters of gay icons, having realized that gay culture will allow Ginger ample opportunity to dance on a float, something she's always dreamed of. Ginger has a way of making everything, including Fortune's life-changing epiphany, about herself. Fortune is more worried about telling her dad Mike (John Carroll Lynch). A janitor at Fortune's school, Mike is taciturn and tough. Divorced from Ginger, he likes to keep his life simple and his worldview small. Fortune once tried to buy him a cappuccino machine and he promptly used it as target practice. Fortune's good-hearted but naïve brother Tyler and his wife Nichole agree with Fortune - Mike may not be able to accept who she is. And worse, the man has a way of cutting things out of his life. Exhibit A is Gordon, Mike's dog, who peed on Mike's truck in 2007. Mike hasn't spoken to him since. And as Tyler points out, being gay is way worse than peeing on a truck. Will Fortune lose her dad? After a quickly aborted attempt to force herself to be straight with her best friend Steven, Fortune realizes she has no choice but to risk her relationship with her father and tell him who she is. Fortune gathers the family together to come out to her Dad, not realizing that her family may have some secrets of their own. "Family Fortune" is based on the life and stand-up of Fortune Feimster. Written by Feimster and Matt Hubbard, it is executive produced by Tina Fey, Robert Carlock, and David Miner.

KNOXVILLE - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Johnny Knoxville of Jackass fame is the narrator in this comedy based on his childhood in Knoxville, Tennessee in the early 1980's. 12-year-old Johnny is impulsive and acts before he thinks: jumping out of trees, eating nails, and rolling down the street inside a tire. His mother, the beautiful Genevieve, worries that all the stress he causes her will ruin her good looks. This lovable narcissist is always happy to share stories about the many men who find her attractive. And yes, it's always about her. She and Johnny love being the center of attention much to the irritation of Johnny's sister, 16-year-old Audrey. Like her mom, Audrey has the beauty to attract lots of suitors and admirers. She's also the brightest one in the family, but that's often overlooked and taken for granted by the rest of the Knoxville clan. Johnny, the future daredevil/prankster, learned many of his skills from his Dad, Ray, who loves playing jokes on people. Ray is a tough guy with a big personality and an even bigger heart, but tends to be a little too lenient when it comes to his chip off the old block. Being a future daredevil/prankster means Johnny gets in trouble pretty much all the time. The only place he can be himself and not get in trouble is at his dad's tire store, where he feels accepted by the guys who work there. There's the even-tempered Big Stevie and the wiry, small and easy to anger "Jukebox" Johnson, Jr. They may be opposite in looks and temperament, but they are both tough like Ray and, as Johnny describes them "very familiar with the judicial system." But his mom wants more for her son than a future working at a tire store. While his teachers see him as an out-of-control student, Genevieve sees him as someone with imagination and boundless energy. She wants him to harness those qualities and do something special with his life... or she'll kill him. Knoxville executive produces with Michael Rotenberg (Silicon Valley, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Everybody Hates Chris), Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted, My Name is Earl) and Dave Becky (Louis). Pilot written by Victor Fresco and directed by Mike Fresco.

NERD HERD - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Special Forces Operations Sergeant Kip Mitchell has been in some of the toughest spots in the world. But now, thanks to a bullet in his derriere, his Blackhawk days are over. He's taking early retirement and taking on his biggest challenge - becoming the stay at home dad to his five super-smart kids. Kip's sexy brainiac wife, Mona Lisa has spent the last fifteen years using her PhD. to home-school their kids while they traveled the world, and they've all grown into smart, fun little weirdos. There's 4-year-old Thunder who reads blueprints and Dostoevsky; Gregory the 9-year-old Donald Trump; 11-year-old Phoebe, whose running a psychiatry practice out of her bedroom; and the twins - teenage computer whizzes Matthew and Marisa. After Kip gets shot in the butt, the Mitchells settle down in California, where they've been offered a free place to stay by Mona Lisa's mom Celeste (Melanie Griffith). Celeste is a former pageant queen who welcomes them with open arms and free spray tanner. Once settled, the Mitchells all take on new roles - Mona Lisa heads back to work at the Community College, Kip stays home, and the kids find themselves in a public junior/senior high for the first time. Predictably, things go south pretty quickly. The kids cause chaos on campus when they create a dating app for the students, Kip gets tased by the overzealous school security guard, and Mona Lisa's students would rather read Lindsay Lohan's tweets than Emily Dickinson's poetry. After all hell breaks loose, Kip deals with something that he rarely faced in the military: his orders are not being obeyed. When the kids refuse to take down the dating app, using his military know-how will help Kip win this battle. But to win the war, he'll have to earn their respect. It's a dilemma every parent has faced, but this one will involve push-ups, blue-prints of the town's water system, a sweat-lodge, dressing up like Sylvia Plath, and lots and lots of sausage. In short, just another day with the nerd herd at the Mitchell abode. Inspired by Kip and Mona Lisa Harding's book, "The Brainy Bunch" about their own high-achieving kids and their homeschooling methods, writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux (Bob's Burgers) exec produce with Imagine's Brian Grazer (Empire, Parenthood, 24) and Francie Calfo (Empire).

THE 46 PERCENTERS - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Three long-term couples celebrate the 16th anniversary of Ramy and Kiri, the couple with the seemingly perfect marriage of the group. At the beginning of the evening they are all part of the 46 Percenters - the percentage of Americans who are staying married. By the end of the night, however, things have changed. To Robert (Ian Gomez) and Judy, Ramy and Kiri's lives seem so much easier and better than their own. It's a little crazy at their house with three children and two full time jobs. Robert and Judy juggle their calendars trying to get to soccer games, dental appointments, teachers meetings, and still make time for each other. They do it all pretty well, except for the time for each other part, which is why Robert has to book an "appointment" in Judy's calendar to M.L. - make love. The other couple is Jay (Malcolm Barrett) and Marni (Angela Kinsey, The Office ). They met in 10th grade and have been soulmates ever since. They are the couple that always want to sit next to each other at dinner parties, have to be on each other's team on game night, the couple that still has sex twice a week. Jay recently left his job so they could start a business together. But, working in their tiny office and being together 24/7 is creating some problems. Marni adores Jay, but working in such tight quarters has made her hyper-aware of his quirks like the way he drinks water from a bottle like a hamster. Jay is surprised to realize that some of her behavior is beginning to annoy him as well, like when she sings the wrong lyrics to songs everyone knows. Or when she redoes whatever he's just done: Marni has a habit of going back and relocking the office door right after Jay has locked it. As the couples toast to the 46 percent of Americans who stay married, Ramy and Kiri surprise everyone and announce that they are going their separate ways. They explain that it is the little things that have driven them apart: her humming, his nose breathing, and the fact that they have to schedule time for sex. The other couples panic. If Ramy and Kiri, the perfect couple, are splitting up, what chance do they have of staying together? Worried Robert tries to sweep Judy back off her feet with a romantic night in a fancy hotel. Self conscious about her body, Judy invites the kids to Robert's dismay. Jay and Marni have heart to heart talks and tell each other about all the little things that get on their nerves. Not the best idea. And Ramy and Kiri find out that being single is not as carefree as they thought. Here's to everyone who wants to be part of the 46 Percenters! An unromantic romantic comedy about the relatable ups and downs of marriage, family, and relationships. From writers Sherry Bilsing-Graham (Friends; New Adventures of Old Christine) and Ellen Kreamer (Friends; New Adventures of Old Christine), who will executive produce.

THE KING OF 7B - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Prentiss Porter (Craig Ferguson) resides in a handsome apartment in New York City and is employed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the Department of Arms & Armor. Prentiss is among the world's foremost experts on medieval weaponry. As a student of military strategy, he can spout quotations from Sun Tzu or George Patton on subjects such as "vanquishing one's enemies" with a grandeur that's most impressive - especially for a man afraid to leave his apartment - something he hasn't done for eleven years. Rather than deal with his condition, Prentiss has created a universe where he has absolute control. Since he cannot go out into the world, he demands the world be brought to him by the ragtag family he has assembled around him. There's his sister, Charlotte Porter Armstrong, a divorced mom and animal rights fanatic, who goes out of her way to run special errands for him. This former debutante now dresses like a vegan hippie who hasn't visited a makeup counter in ages. She's a bit of a hoarder and makes one wonder if dysfunction runs in the family. For groceries and gossip, he gets deliveries from Darren, a Millennial with a podcast, whose family owns the bodega downstairs. Prentiss gets almost daily visits from his housekeeper Juana de la Cruz, a widowed mother of four, who provides tough love and common sense, in addition to running the household and gossiping about the neighbors they watch through the window. The newest and soon-to-be-regular visitor is Greta Milgrim, a new intern from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, who has come by to deliver a medieval gauntlet. Ostensibly she will be with Prentiss no longer than today. But today, something happens that changes everything... love at first sight. Catching sight of his new neighbor (through binoculars), Prentiss vows to meet her and marry her. His sixth sense must be at work because she, too, is a renowned expert on Medieval History. She is Professor Veronica Shultz, who wrote a book that Prentiss holds in the highest esteem. But, she is old school- no cell phone, no email and hates the internet because it has made us a nation of shut-ins. Could this be a deal breaker? Prentiss plots to get her to come to his apartment using his knowledge from "The Art of War," and gets help for his elaborate plan from Charlotte, Darren, Juana, and Greta. But the King of 7B may need to do something even bigger... step outside his door to battle his demons and win over the love of his life. Written and executive produced by Howard Franklin (Quick Change, The Big Year), Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Tangled, Cars), Ben Karlin (Modern Family, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), Jess Rosenthall and directed by David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada, Marley & Me).

THE REAL O'NEALS - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Everyone admires the O'Neal Family. Eileen O'Neal (Martha Plimpton) is the quintessential wife and mother. She is always impeccably dressed, runs an idyllic household and spearheads church events with ease and flair. Her husband, Pat O'Neal (Jay R. Ferguson) is a local cop and hero in their Chicago community. Though he doesn't quite have Eileen's passion for perfection, he tries his best to keep her happy. Each of the O'Neal children excels in their own way. The eldest, 17-year-old Jimmy (Matthew Shively), is a handsome varsity wrestler and 14-year-old Shannon (Bebe Wood) is known for her charity work and ceaseless fundraising efforts. And then there's 16-year-old Kenny who is clearly Mom's favorite, even though he doesn't have the athleticism or altruism of his siblings. (Let's just say that neither of them will watch The Bachelor with her every week!) As the picture perfect O'Neal family prepares for Eileen's highly anticipated annual church fundraiser, a blemish appears on the facade of perfection when Kenny's girlfriend, Mimi, tries to convince him they should have sex. This privately awkward moment immediately becomes public when Kenny tries to flush Mimi's condoms down the toilet and accidentally floods the house while Father Phil and women from the church are making baskets for bingo night. Eileen is horrified and embarrassed. The increasing pressure from Mimi, and a very unorthodox sex talk orchestrated by his father, forces Kenny to face the fact that he's gay and he simply can't keep it to himself any longer. Just before the church bingo game begins, he finally finds the courage to tell his family the truth. But before Kenny can share his news, his dad shares a confession of his own: he and Eileen are secretly in therapy and contemplating divorce. Desperate to get his kids to open up for the first time, he pushes them to share as well. Jimmy reluctantly admits he's anorexic. Then Shannon reveals she's been stealing from her charitable collections to buy herself a car. And Kenny finally tells his family that he's gay. This contagious bout of confessions shatters Eileen's myth of their perfect family. It's clear that it will take time for her to adjust, but instead of destroying her family, it's actually the beginning of a new, messier, family where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real. Written by David Windsor and Casey Johnson (Galavant) and produced by bestselling author Dan Savage (It Gets Better), Stacy Traub (Trophy Wife, Glee), Brian Pines (Hypomania Content), Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott (DiBonaventura Pictures Television). Todd Holland (Malcolm in the Middle) also produces and directs.

UNCLE BUCK - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Based on the hit movie of the same name, Uncle Buck (Mike Epps) is still an irresponsible man-child. He recently got fired from his job at the mall and his girlfriend has kicked him out. Needing a place to stay, he calls his brother, Will, the stable one in the family. He's married to Alexis (Nia Long) and they have three children, 5-year-old Maizy who's the dreamer, 9-year-old Miles who likes to stir the pot, and 16-yearold Tia who is the straight A student and trying to get rid of her nerdy image. Their fifth and most recent Nanny called them "demon children" before she quit. Desperate for a babysitter, Will and Alexis invite Uncle Buck to stay for the weekend so they can take their business trip. They leave a long list of instructions and hope that everyone will be alive when they get back. Uncle Buck's kidlike personality is almost an asset in this situation, as he can relate to his nephew and nieces. He is usually a step ahead of them keeping them out of trouble, and keeping Tia away from Jordan, the school gigolo. True, this dreamer and schemer brought the kids to a bar to sell questionable TVs to a questionable buyer, but it all sort of worked out okay. When Will and Alexis rush back early from their trip, worried, they hear the fire alarm. But it is only Uncle Buck making the biggest pancake in the world. They see that everyone looks like they are having fun. Their kids haven't sent him packing and he's managed to keep them alive and well. Maybe he's the 'Manny' they've needed all along and perhaps they are the answer to his problems. Written by Mad TV's Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley who will executive produce with Will Packer (Ride Along, Think Like a Man), Kat Likkel and John Hoberg.

UNTITLED JUDAH MILLER - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Gary and Irene's eight-year-old son, Gus, is not exactly a chip off the old block. Gary, a geriatric physician, is intellectual and conflict-averse. His Tony-awardwinning wife, Irene (Megan Hilty), gave up her glamorous Broadway life to raise their son in the suburbs, which she's perfectly content with - so long as she has an excuse to dress up in costume or burst into song every now and then. Somehow this combination of intellect and drama has produced a fiercely competitive and athletically-inclined alpha male, August (named after the great playwright August Strindberg), who prefers to go by "Gus." In Gus's world everything is a competition, with a clear winner and loser, whether it's brushing his teeth, eating dinner, or even peeing. Unfortunately, Gus does not share many of Gary's interests, including a Legobuilding contest which Gary considers not only to be a family tradition, but a wonderful way for him and his son to "connect." Pun intended... The Lego team also includes Gary's opportunistic twin sister, Susie, and her husband Ty, another natural athlete. Ty and Gus's mutual love of sports makes Gary a bit jealous, especially since he already feels like his connection with his son has fallen into jeopardy when Irene signed Gus up for the soccer team. Although the only thing Gary knows about soccer is that he doesn't like it, he'll stray out of his comfort zone to support his son. Gary is assigned to referee Gus's game, while Irene, determined to play the part of "Queen of the Soccer Moms," volunteers to handle snacks. She enlists the help of her gay Greek chorus - the Three Bears: Jose Luis, Danny and Rusty - whose idea of appropriate soccer game snacks is white sangria and Barefoot Contessainspired cupcakes. On Gary's first day as referee he becomes disillusioned by Gus's overly competitive behavior on the field and bans his son from the game after he makes a teammate cry. Gary then butts heads with the equally competitive Coach Rob, who is half-soccer coach, half-drill sergeant. Adding fuel to the fire, Irene's fabulous soccer snacks don't go over as well as she had hoped - the sangria and sugar filled cupcakes should have been juice boxes and granola bars. Why can't they fit in as easily as their son? But ultimately, Gary and Irene realize that it's about understanding their son rather than understanding sports. They accept him for who he is, as he loves and accepts them for who they are - the most unconventional parents on the block. Writer Judah Miller (American Dad, King of the Hill) executive produces with Tom Lassally (Silicon Valley) and Jonathan Berry.

WARRIORS - HALF HOUR COMEDY

SHOW INFO
Jason Bloomberg (Skylar Astin, Pitch Perfect) graduated college a couple years ago and lives in his parents' basement. He still pines for ex-girlfriend, Bridget, who he followed to Africa with the Peace Corps. His Dad, Bob (Matthew Glave), wants him to give up on Bridget, quit his part time teaching, find a real job and move out... like now. But, his mom, Bonnie (Jami Gertz), still does his laundry and is happy to have her son at home. Jason is teaching the African language Lingala which usually doesn't open too many doors, but that's not the case today. The NBA's Golden State Warriors basketball team, have taken a chance on rookie player, Moseki "Mo" Gosego (Blondy Baruti). Mo recently arrived from Congo, and needs a translator who can speak - you guessed it - Lingala. What little English Mo knows is from watching Fantasy Island reruns on the one TV in his small village. Jason meets this towering 18-year-old, who is a kind and thoughtful kid and a fish out of water in the NBA world of fierce competition and glitzy rewards. Mo is homesick, especially for his cows. Jason visits his swank apartment the team rented for him, but sees he has no furniture except a pool table Mo sleeps on and an old bike he rides to the practices. No wonder it doesn't feel like home. Mo has barely spent any of his 15 million-dollar salary, other than to send it home. His teammates haze Mo and call him Butter, because he's a big lump on the court. Jason doesn't know a thing about basketball, but like Mo, he's an underdog. He'll live with Mo 24/7 translating and helping him adjust to life on and off the court. To keep the best job he's ever had, he'll have to find a way to light a fire under this incredibly tall and talented athlete who seems to lack any drive. If it works out like everyone hopes, this friendship just may help them both get game. Written by Casey Johnson and David Windsor (both of Trophy Wife) who will executive produce with Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Tangled, Cars), Aaron Kaplan (Neighbors, Secrets and Lies), Mandalay Sports Media's Mike Tollin (Smallville, One Tree Hill) and Peter Guber (co-owner of the Golden State Warriors).
