Upfronts 2014: First Look At TBS’ ‘Your Family Or Mine’

Your Family Or Mine (FT)

TVWise continues our Upfronts coverage with a first look at TBS’ new comedy series Your Family Or Mine.

Your Family Or Mine centers on Oliver (Kyle Howard) and Kelli (Kat Foster), a young couple with two daughters. Oliver and Kelli are living proof of the adage, “When you marry someone, you don’t just marry them, you marry their whole family.” Putting a unique spin on domestic comedies, each episode of Your Family or Mine will focus on a different side of the family, one week with Kelli’s family, the next with Oliver’s.

Oliver’s parents, Louis (Richard Dreyfuss) and Ricky (JoBeth Williams) Mansfield, never make visits comfortable for Kelli, who grudgingly endures inappropriate remarks from gruff retiree Louis and thinly veiled insults from Ricky. Time spent at the Mansfield household also includes frequent encounters with Oliver’s brothers, the cocky Jason (Danny Comden) and the dreamy Blake (Andrew Lees).

Your Family or Mine breathes new life into the domestic family comedy format with its innovative ‘one week with her family, the next with his’ format,” said Michael Wright, President and Head of Programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “This series brings together an ideal ensemble of young talents and award-winning veterans, along with a remarkable production team led by hit-maker Greg Malins, our frequent collaborator Jamie Tarses and our new friends at Keshet International.”
