The single-camera comedy about a blended family, produced with Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video, aired for 11 episodes in March and April 2006.

Holly told the Associated Press in 2006 that instead of a traditional script, the actors were given a “short story” that “occasionally includes a line or two of dialogue but is normally just this novelization.” There was no laugh track in the series. In 2011, he and Goss wrote for the YouTube animated series The LeBrons.
