Amongst the 13 new shows that NBC has ordered for next season is Sean Saves The World, a sitcom which follows a man who must figure out how to parent his 14-year-old daughter while navigating a temperamental new boss at work. The series comes from Victor Fresco, Sean Hayes and Universal Television. Want to know more about Sean Saves The World? TVWise presents a first look at the new series.

Sean (Sean P. Hayes) is a divorced gay dad who juggles a lot — his successful but demanding career, offbeat employees, pushy mom Lorna (Linda Lavin) and weekends with his teenage daughter, Ellie (Sami Isler). So when she moves in full-time, it’s a whole new world. Never one to do anything halfway, Sean’s intent on being the best dad ever, so he loads up on parenting how-to books and plans Pinterest-worthy family dinners. But it seems his company’s new owner has decided Sean and his team should work longer hours, putting a damper on his homemaking plans and throwing a kink in Sean’s perfectly constructed work/life balance. Ellie sees this development as a plus. She loves her dad, but he’s clearly going overboard. From keeping his boss happy, employees motivated and enduring his mother’s tactless “advice” to raising a smart, grounded and healthy kid, it’s going to be a growing experience, to say the least. But if anyone can handle it all, it’s Sean. Thomas Lennon (Reno 911), Lindsay Sloane (Weeds) and Echo Kellum (Ben and Kate) also star.
