Season 1

Welcome to the Family is an American television sitcom created by Mike Sikowitz which follows a clash of cultures involving two American families brought together by their teenage children who - after one of them gets pregnant - decide to get married, forcing a bonding and blending of their two very different families.

The series aired in the USA on NBC from 3-17 October, 2013. Although nine episodes were ordered, only three aired in the USA before the show was cancelled.

Welcome to the Family premiered in South Africa on DStv's Comedy Central channel on Monday 24 February 2014, at 19h15. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

Dan Yoder (Mike O'Malley) and wife, Caroline (Mary McCormack), think they finally have it made. Their daughter, Molly (Ella Rae Peck) - not the most diligent of students - has managed to graduate from high school and has been accepted to college. Her proud parents are looking forward to an empty nest and are breathing a heavy sigh of relief.

Across town, Molly's secret boyfriend, Junior Hernandez (Joey Haro), is graduating from his high school with top honours and has plans to go to Stanford.

Parents Miguel (Ricardo Chavira) and Lisette (Justina Machado) are bursting with pride. Everything seems like it is falling into place for them, but unbeknownst to both families, Molly and Junior are about to become parents themselves.

Once the teens break the big news, these two very different families are thrown together, which goes anything but smoothly... and the news that Molly and Junior are engaged to be married doesn't exactly make things better.

Dan and Miguel have the most difficult time adjusting to their new situation (and each other), while Caroline and Lisette take a softer approach to getting to know one another.

When each of the parents realises the kids are serious about making a life together, the adults exhale and begin to come to terms with this new blended family.

Clearly, it will take understanding, humour, love and patience to make it all work.

Creator-writer Mike Sikowitz (Rules of Engagement, Friends) serves as an executive producer along with Jamie Tarses (Happy Endings, Franklin & Bash). Michael Engler serves as executive producer/director.

Welcome to the Family is a production of Sony Pictures Television.
