For a comedy show that's going to premiere on network television right after FOX's NFL coverage of a big doubleheader game on New Year's Day, there are sure a lot of F-words. Not that we're complaining or anything.
Check out a newly-released red band trailer for an uncensored look at FOX's new outlandish comedy series "The Mick," which hails from Dave and John Chernin, the producers of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."
"Always Sunny" comedienne Kaitlin Olson stars in this Uncle Buck-esque comedy, playing an irresponsible, foul-mouthed degenerate who is forced to look after her sister's young rebellious children when she is arrested and hauled off by the FBI.
Also starring Sofia Black-D'Elia, Thomas Barbusca, Jack Stanton, Tricia O'Kelley, and Suzanne Whang, "The Mick" will have a special Sunday night premiere on January 1, but will start its regular timeslot on Tuesday, January 3. (No word yet if FOX plans to release the uncensored version of the show on something like VOD.)
THE MICK is a no-holds-barred single-camera comedy that gives new meaning to the phrase "dysfunctional family."
MACKENZIE aka MICKEY (Kaitlin Olson, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") is a brash, two-bit hustler from Rhode Island who has spent her entire life shirking any semblance of responsibility. Lacking any drive, but in constant search of the next easy payday, Mickey is not without her charms. She's smart, she's fun, and despite all appearances, her head's always in the game. She just needs a big win. That win kinda, sorta comes true when, looking for a handout, Mickey visits her estranged sister and billionaire brother-in-law in Greenwich, CT, but gets more than she bargained for, as this absurdly rich couple flees the country to escape federal fraud charges.
In a surprising turn of events, Mickey must assume guardianship of their three high-maintenance and ill-parented children: SABRINA (Sofia Black D'Elia), an ambitious, 18-going-on-30-year-old who is a worthy adversary to Mickey; CHIP (Thomas Barbusca), 13, an arrogant, entitled neo-con-in-the-making with an extremely punchable face; and BEN (Jack Stanton), seven, an adorably fragile nerd.
The life that Mickey has wanted for so long now is within her reach -- the mansion, the convertible, the swimming pool, the walk-in closet full of designer clothes. But as Mickey is well aware, nothing in life is free. The price? Transforming these outrageously spoiled children into honest, hard-working, decent members of society -- something this foul-mouthed, debaucherous and completely out-of-her-element woman knows absolutely nothing about. Being a mother was never in Mickey's game plan, but these kids desperately need a parent. And as irresponsible as Mickey has been her entire life, she may discover that responsibility and motherhood aren’t the buzzkill she always thought they would be.
