Family is enough to drive anyone a little crazy. Children keep secrets from their parents so they won't upset them, dads leave for other women and moms try to run over dads with the car. Actually, that was the point when the Crumb family knew Mom was crazy.
Estranged brothers Mitch (Fred Savage) and Jack Crumb (Eddie McClintock) reunite in their small hometown to deal with their mother Suzanne(Jane Curtin), who is being released from a psychiatric country club, Cedar Hill, and has yet to discover that her ex-husband Billy (William Devane) is about to have a baby with his new girlfriend. They have issues… major issues. Central to everything is the dynamic between these two brothers; Mitch is the prodigal son who is returning home after a failed Hollywood career, and Jack is the older brother who has stayed in the confines of their small New England town to run the family business. Together for the first time as adults, this family will have to stick by one another despite their combustible relationships. Elvis (Reginald Ballard) works at Silver Hill.
The creator of Caroline in the City mines his own WASP family for comic gold that's smart, funny and surprising. Starring Fred Savage (The Wonder Years), William Devane (24 and Early Edition), and Jane Curtin (two-time Emmy Award winner for Kate & Allie, SNL, 3rd Rock from the Sun) and from the producers of Smallville and One Tree Hill comes an offbeat comedy everyone can relate to.
