Better with You (ABC)Better With You (ABC) – 8:30pm DTV

 

Starts September 22

Synopsis: Maddie and Ben have been dating for nine years. They know each other inside and out, a relationship marked by contentment and affection, seeing their commitment to one another as a “valid life choice,” something they proclaim often — and often loudly. Maddie’s younger sister, Mia, has been dating Casey for seven weeks. With a shared c’est la vie attitude, Mia and Casey are smitten with each other, and thrilled to explore the oh-so-many things they don’t know about each other yet. But when they announce they’re getting married and having a baby, it’s news that throws Maddie for a loop. Surprisingly, the girls’ parents, Vicky and Joel, couldn’t be more pleased. Married 35 years, they have recently adopted a carpe diem sort of philosophy, rather like Mia’s, maybe because they’re getting older and lost a good portion of their savings when the economy tanked. With three very different relationships tightly intertwined in one family, will it be free thinkers vs. over-thinkers, or will each couple begin to see things a little bit differently?

Cast: JoAnna Garcia (Mia), Jennifer Finnigan (Maddie), Josh Cooke (Ben), Jake Lacy (Casey), with Kurt Fuller (Joel), Debra Jo Rupp (Vicky)

Together, they’re putting THE MIDDLE on the map.
