Season 1

Surviving Suburbia is an American television sitcom created by Kevin Abbott and produced by Media Rights Capital which focuses on a family leading a seemingly normal life until their new next-door neighbours cause several problems, turning their suburban lifestyle upside-down.

The series aired in the USA on ABC from 6 April to 17 August, 2009. It was cancelled by ABC on 7 May, 2009. There are 13 half-hour episodes in the series.

Surviving Suburbia premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Thursday 24 December 2009, at 19h30. New episodes air weekly.

Synopsis

In the family-centered tradition of Roseanne and Home Improvement, Surviving Suburbia opens the curtain to follow Bob Saget and Cynthia Stevenson 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 neighbour 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 and G. Hannelius as the Patterson kids. Jere Burns and Dan Cortese are recurring guest stars.

Surviving Suburbia is produced by Media Rights Capital. Kevin Abbott and Acme Productions' Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis are executive producers.
