New comedy THE MICK will premiere on Sunday, Jan. 1 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), following the NFL doubleheader on FOX. The series will then make its time period premiere with an all-new episode Tuesday, Jan. 3 (8:31-9:01 PM ET/PT).
THE MICK follows MACKENZIE, aka “MICKEY” (Kaitlin Olson, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), a brash, two-bit hustler from Rhode Island who must assume guardianship of her sister’s three high-maintenance children. As irresponsible as Mickey has been her entire life, she may discover that responsibility isn’t the buzzkill she always thought it would be. The series also stars Sofia Black D’Elia (“The Night Of”), Thomas Barbusca (“Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life”), newcomer Jack Stanton, Carla Jimenez (“Last Man Standing”) and newcomer Scott MacArthur.
THE MICK is produced by 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created/written by John Chernin (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and David Chernin (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”). The Chernin brothers, Nick Frenkel (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and Oly Obst (“Barely Famous”), along with Randall Einhorn (“Nurse Jackie,” “The Office”), who directed the pilot episode, are executive producers. Kaitlin Olson is a co-executive producer on the series. “Like” THE MICK on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TheMickFOX/. Follow the series on Twitter @TheMickFOX and join the discussion at #TheMick.
