TBS is assembling the second half of the family in the comedy series Your Family Or Mine. Ed Begley Jr. (Arrested Development) and Stephanie Hunt (Californication) have been cast as regulars and Collette Wolfe (Cougar Town) as a recurring on the new series from creator Greg Malins, Sony TV and Jamie Tarses’ Fanfare Prods. Based on the Israeli series from Keshet, Your Family Or Mine focuses on young couple Kelli (Kat Foster) and Oliver (Kyle Howard) and alternates between the two sides of the their family. The pilot featured Oliver’s side, with Richard Dreyfuss and JoBeth Williams playing his parents and Danny Comden and Andrew Lees as his brothers.
Now TBS has cast three key members of Kelli’s family: her father Gil (Begley) and her sisters Dani (Hunt) and Shawni (Wolfe). (The role of the mother has not been cast.) Begley’s Gil is the ponytailed patriarch of the Durnin family. The psychology professor thinks his son-in–law Oliver is repressed and diagnoses him with a variety of “psychological” ailments. Hunt’s Dani is the youngest sister and happy-go-lucky wild child in Kelli’s family. She gets away with everything, never gets caught and manages to slide out of awkward family situations, leaving Kelli to deal with it. Wolfe’s Shawni is a bit of a waif, offbeat and a sometime vegan. She has two children from a previous marriage, and her views on child rearing clash with Kelli’s, especially her rule of never saying “no” to her children because it has “negative connotations.”
Your Family Or Mine is slated to premiere in summer 2015. Hunt is repped by Untitled Entertainment, Innovative and Marcy Morris.
