THE MICK is a no-holds-barred single-camera comedy that gives new meaning to the phrase “dysfunctional family.”
MACKENZIE aka “MICKEY” (Kaitlin Olson, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) is an unapologetic degenerate, who suddenly finds herself stuck in affluent Greenwich, CT, raising her spoiled niece and nephews: SABRINA (Sofia Black-D’Elia, “The Night Of”), an ambitious, 18-going-on-30-year-old who is a worthy adversary to Mickey; CHIP (Thomas Barbusca, “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life”), 13, an arrogant, entitled neo-con-in-the-making with an extremely punchable face; and BEN (newcomer Jack Stanton), seven, an adorably fragile nerd.
It’s pretty much everything Mickey has never wanted.
Regardless, she’s determined to rise to the occasion and transform these little monsters into honest, hard-working, decent members of society – something she knows absolutely nothing about.
Being a mother was never in Mickey’s game plan, but these kids desperately need a parent.
As irresponsible as Mickey has been her entire life, she may discover that responsibility and motherhood aren’t the buzzkill she always thought they would be.
The series also stars Carla Jimenez (“Raising Hope”) and Scott MacArthur (“Angie Tribeca”).
