Synopsis

Bill Engvall plays Bill Pearson, a family counselor who can’t always figure out his own family. Nancy Travis co-stars as his wife, while Tim Meadows plays his best friend.

The series also features the Pearson children, played by Jennifer Lawrence, Graham Patrick Martin and Skyler Gisondo.

Set in a Denver suburb, Engvall and Travis offer a humorous look at what it takes to be a parent in today’s world. They face parenting issues like allowance controversies, driver’s licenses and parking tickets, all while trying to keep the spark alive in their marriage and balancing work with family life.

Teenage daughter Lauren (Lawrence) is a typical high-school girl who is trying to find her way through classes and dating. Sports fan and video-gamer Trent (Martin) is the middle child. Musically talented neat-freak Bryan (Gisondo) is the resident baby and genius of the family.

Bill works in the same building as his closest friend, Paul Dufrayne (Meadows). Paul is a renowned hair-replacement specialist who is treated like part of the Pearson family.

Paul likes to look good and is into the latest technology, but he’s unlucky in love.
