Episode Synopsis: Welcome to the Family Episode 1 “Pilot”- Dan Yoder (Mike O’Malley, “Glee,”) and wife Caroline (Mary McCormack, “In Plain Sight”) are happily anticipating an empty nest as their daughter Molly (Ella Rae Peck, “Gossip Girl”) gets ready to head off to college. Molly has some interesting news for them, however, and when she announces that she and her secret boyfriend Junior Hernandez (Joseph Haro, “Glee,” “Awkward”) are going to have a baby, they have to adjust to a new reality and meet their new family – Miguel (Ricardo A. Chavira, “Desperate Housewives”) and Lisette (Justina Machado, “Six Feet Under”). When these two very different families are thrown together, it’s obvious that Dan and Miguel have the most difficult time adjusting to their new situation, while Caroline and Lisette take a softer approach.

Parents Dan Yoder (Mike O’Malley, “Glee,” “My Name Is Earl”) and wife Karina (Mary McCormack, “In Plain Sight,” “The West Wing”) find out on the day their daughter Molly (Ella Rae Peck (“Deception,” “Gossip Girl”) is graduating from high school with an acceptance to college, she announces she pregnant. Across town in East L.A., Junior Hernandez (Joseph Haro, “Glee,” “Awkward”), in the middle of his high school valedictorian speech, gets a text from girlfriend Molly that he’s going to be a daddy.

Expectedly, Junior’s parents Miguel (Ricardo Chavira, “Desperate Housewives”) and Lisette (Justina Machado, “Six Feet Under,” “ER”) are also upset, as they now have Caucasians in the family. What follows is a crash course in culture blending as Molly and Junior decide they want to get married and, in doing so, bring together two very different families. The dads have the most difficult time reconciling while the moms take a softer approach to get to know one another. When the parents fully realize that their kids are serious about making a life together, the adults exhale and begin to come to terms with this new blended family and start to understand it will take, humor, love and tolerance to make it all work.

Writer Mike Sikowitz (“Rules of Engagement,” “Friends”) and Jamie Tarses (“Happy Endings, “Franklin & Bash”) serve as executive producers. “Welcome to the Family” is a production of Sony Pictures Television and FanFare Productions.
