Sons & Daughters is an American situation comedy created by Fred Goss, Lorne Michaels and Nick Holly about an extended blended family living close together in a neighbourhood. The show is a mixture of improvisational and scripted humour.

Sons & Daughters premiered in South Africa on SABC3 on Wednesday 22 December 2010, at 19h30. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

Family is always unpredictable, so why write a family comedy when you can live dangerously and improvise instead? Like real families, you never know what will happen when you give characters total freedom.

Adult siblings Cameron, Sharon and Jenna have many years of shared history in this small town. Like every other family on the planet, their history includes many mistakes. This is proven by the multiple marriages and many children in their close extended clan.

Sharon has postponed her mid-life crisis for the sake of her kids, but her sexless marriage, slacker son and nosey daughter don't make things easy for her.

Jenna, the youngest, wanted to be a singer, but instead is a single mom who still lives at home. Luckily her parents love babysitting their grandson.

Middle child Cameron, despite having kids from two marriages and a difficult relationship with his oldest son, Henry, is the glue that holds the family together.

With all the messy interpersonal relationships, rivalries and religious differences, everyone needs someone to be the family's designated driver.

In the series premiere, Cameron throws a 25th anniversary party for his mother, Colleen, and stepfather, Wendal, which threatens to be a disaster when Wendal confides to Cameron that hes thinking of leaving Colleen.

Making matters worse is the fact that Cameron shared this information with his sister, Sharon, in confidence, and the news has spread quickly.

Meanwhile, Sharon and her husband, Don, struggle with intimacy issues in their marriage, which their children soon become all too aware of.
