Created/written by the Chernins, The Mick stars Kaitlin Olson, who also co-executive produces, as Mickey, a brash, two-bit hustler from Rhode Island who has spent her entire life shirking any semblance of responsibility. Not without her charms. Mickey’s smart, 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 Mickey must assume guardianship of her wealthy sister’s three high-maintenance and ill-parented children. Annable will play Teddy Grant, a sophisticated, handsome adventurer, and the scion of a family that’s been in Greenwich since the Revolutionary War. He takes a liking to Mickey, and finds her down-to-earth personality quite refreshing. However, before long things go awry.
Annable, who played Justin Walker on Brothers & Sisters, most recently co-starred on medical drama Heartbeat and was a series regular on Red Band Society. He will next be seen in a lead role opposite Wesley Snipes and Anne Heche in feature Temple. He’s repped by UTA and managed by Sue Leibman.
