About the Show

Growing Up Fisher is an American television sitcom created by DJ Nash which follows a family that is brought closer together after a divorce, revolving around the 11-year-old son who idolises his blind father and enjoys his mother's newfound adolescence.

It's not every family that's brought closer together by divorce, but then again, the Fishers are anything but typical.

Take Mel Fisher (J.K. Simmons, The Closer, Law & Order), for example. He's chopping down trees, showing his daughter how to drive and playing football with his son... except that Mel's blind.

Then there's Joyce (Jenna Elfman, Dharma & Greg, 1600 Penn), who is your typical teenager - really into fashion, busy with school - but the problem is she's Mom. That makes it difficult for her actual teenage daughter, Katie (Ava Deluca-Verley, Southland), whose advice (and clothes) Joyce is always seeking.

At the centre of all this is Henry (Eli Baker), the Fishers' 11-year-old son. Having always been his dad's eyes and wingman, Henry is less than thrilled when his job is outsourced to Mel's new guide dog, Elvis.

While the boy is at first reluctant to accept the changes that Elvis brings, adult Henry (voiceover by Jason Bateman, Arrested Development, Identity Thief) realises upon reflection that his parents' split finally allowed the Fishers to become one happy (divorced) family.

Inspired by his own life, DJ Nash (Up All Night, Bent) serves as executive producer along with Bateman, Jim Garavente (Identity Thief) and Tucker Cawley (Up All Night, Everybody Loves Raymond). Growing Up Fisher is a production of Universal Television and Aggregate Films.
