The Days

Show Summary

Welcome to The Days guide at The Days is a smart and true take on a modern American family with two ambitious parents and three strong-minded kids, as they grapple with sobering and often humorous change-of-life issues. Each episode of The Days chronicles a 24-hour period in the life of the family, as seen through the witty but cynical eyes of fifteen year-old son Cooper. Jack Day is the prototypical attorney -- except that he hates practicing law. His wife, Abby (Marguerite MacIntyre, The Shield), has recently reentered the workforce and been promoted to creative director of a major Philadelphia ad agency. Jack (David Newsom, Talk to Me) and Abby have three kids: Natalie (Laura Ramsey), a straight-A student, soccer star and prom queen, Cooper (Evan Peters, Sleepover), a sometimes dark and insightful teenager who takes the family's pulse on a daily basis from his edgy perspective, and Nathan (Zach Maurer), an nine-year-old genius who suffers panic attacks. The challenges the Days face as a family are at once unique and universal, among them -- the stress of job change or of jobs that never change; the uncomfortable newness of additions to family, and the equally uncomfortable sameness of family; the issues of true identity faced by kids racing towards adulthood, and on the other extreme of adults longing for childhood. Executive producers for the series are Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins, Joe Davola, Peter Tortorici, and John Scott Shepherd (Life or Something Like It), who also wrote and created it. The Days is from Mindshare North America and Tollin/Robbins Productions. Broadcast History on ABC July 2004 - August 2004 -Sundays at 10/9cmoreless
