Tuesdays on NBC (8:30-9 p.m. ET)
This cross-generational, domestic comedy from the producers of NBCs Frasier features a relationship between natural enemies father-in-law versus son-in-law as they fight for the love of one woman.
Newlyweds Matt (Elon Gold, Clerks) and Alex (Bonnie Somerville, NBCs Friends) move in with her parents (Dennis Farina, Get Shorty, and Emmy winner Jean Smart, Designing Women) to save money so Matt can attend cooking school, forever changing the dynamics of this loving family.
The challenges are great as Matt clashes with Victor Pellet (Farina), his overprotective, gruff father-in-law. A self-made man, Victor owns a private security firm and routinely takes offense at every turn — often insisting on so much private convo time that the boxed-in Matt feels more like an outlaw than an in-law. Meanwhile, Marlene (Smart), Matts sleek mother-in-law, trades in her designer apron for a real-estate license. Alex, works as a nurse when shes not mediating between her father and husband.
The misunderstandings and hair-trigger relationships all make for an unruly yet loving household and a rocky start for the exasperated Matt and Alex, who knows how to handle her father yet finds herself walking the fine line between being Daddys little girl and a new wife.
Mark Reisman (Frasier, Wings) is the executive producer and writer of In-Laws from NBC Studios, Paramount Television and Grammnet Productions. Multiple Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer (Frasier) also is executive producer.
