Lost at Home

Show Summary

AKA: Michael Jacobs' Untitled Pilot (USA) (working title) AKA: My Second Chance (USA) (working title) From Michael Jacobs comes a new family comedy Lost at Home. Michael Davis thinks he has it all - he's an ad agency superstar with a fancy title and ambition to spare. He's a great provider, and is proud of the restored farmhouse where his stay-at-home wife, Rachel and their three kids live in a beautiful country setting. But somewhere on the road to fame and fortune, and the endless workdays it took to get him there, Michael lost touch with his family. He gets a wake-up call when Rachel announces that he's allowed to love his work, just not more than his family. She's seen a lawyer - and unless he reconnects with his family, she's going to leave. Bright and beautiful, Rachel has tried her best to raise their kids virtually on her own. She tells Michael that he remembers the kids for who they used to be, not who they are now. He's in for a shock. The oldest, Will, is a popular high school football player whose morals are ruled by his hormones. Thirteen-year-old Sara doesn't fit in at school and has turned to an unlikely place for friendship - a huge older classman football player, Tucker, who gives her the sage attention and advice she misses from her dad. Seven-year-old Joshua is a little too perfect, trying too hard to be a wonderful student and obedient son. It's something Michael tries to take smug credit for, until Rachel tells him that the school counselor thinks Joshua's behavior is an attempt to win his absent father's attention. Michael wants to earn back the love of his wife and the trust of his kids, but he's a fish out of water in his own house. He's been away so long he doesn't even know how the kitchen appliances work. The winning strategies that have made him a success at work are surprisingly useless at home. But he's determined to try and win back his place in the family. His boss and best friend, charismatic ad agency owner Jordan King, reluctantly agrees to give him less work. Michael begins a heartfelt journey to be defined by his success as a family man, and not just a businessman. ---------------------- Company credits: Production Companies * Michael Jacobs Productions * NBC Studios * Touchstone Television Distributors * American Broadcasting Company (ABC) * Buena Vista International (2003-) (worldwide) (TV) Other Companies * Matchframe Video post-production facilities --------------------------- Release dates USA 9 April 2003 -------------------------- Directors: Andy Cadiff Mark Cendrowski Ken Whittingham Brian K.

  • A great family comedy.

    This was a great family comedy television series. As is normal with good television shows, this one did not last long enough. This is a show that I would suggest watching if you get the chance. Check the bargain bins at Wal-Mart, the online movies sites (Amazon.com and such) and all of the cable channels that run old shows. Nick at Nite and TV Land are great for theses kind of shows. They will even do a week long spot for shows that only had 6 or so episodes. Then you have your super stations. They run a bunch of old shows too. All in all a pretty good show that did not get a good enough chance. Sometimes it is a simple as the show it is up against. Look at Law & Order. It is one of the longest running shows on TV. They moved it to go up against Lost. After about 2 weeks of getting pounded in the ratings it was moved back to it's original time slot. Shows like this should be given more of an opportunity.moreless
