Episode Synopsis: Growing Up Fisher (NBC) Episode 6 “Work with Me” – In her ongoing quest to assert her independence, Joyce (Jenna Elfman) is determined to get a job. Mel (J.K. Simmons) encourages and supports her until she actually gets one – at Mel’s law firm. But, surprisingly, Mel and Joyce work together well. It’s Joyce and Mel’s secretary Janice (guest star Carla Jimenez) who can’t play nice, and their feud sets fires that Mel scrambles to put out. Meanwhile, tired of seeing Henry (Eli Baker) strike out with over-the-top romantic gestures, Katie (Ava Deluca-Verley) coaches him on how to land Jenny (guest star Isabela Moner): play it cool. Lance Lim also stars. Voice-over by Jason Bateman. Bill Fagerbakke, Hunter Cope and Tanner Buchanan also guest star.

Show Summary: It’s not every family that’s brought closer together by divorce, but then again, the Fishers are anything but typical. Take Mel Fisher (J.K. Simmons, “The Closer,” “Law & Order”), for example. He’s chopping down trees, showing his daughter how to drive, and playing football with his son … except that Mel’s blind. Then there’s Joyce (Jenna Elfman, “Dharma & Greg,” “1600 Penn”), who is your typical teenager — really into fashion, busy with school — but the problem is she’s Mom. That makes it difficult for her actual teenage daughter, Katie (Ava Deluca-Verley, “Southland”), whose advice (and clothes) Joyce is always seeking. At the center of all this is Henry (Eli Baker), the Fisher’s 11-year-old son. Having always been his dad’s eyes and wingman, Henry is less than thrilled when his job is outsourced to Mel’s new guide dog, Elvis. While he is at first reluctant to accept the changes that Elvis brings, adult Henry realizes upon reflection (voiceover by Jason Bateman, “Arrested Development,” “Identity Thief”) that his parent’s split finally allows the Fishers to become one happy (divorced) family.

Based on his life, DJ Nash (“Up All Night,” “Bent”) serves as executive producer, along with Bateman, Jim Garavente (“Identity Thief”) and Tucker Cawley (“Up All Night,” “Everybody Loves Raymond”). “Growing Up Fisher” is a production of Universal Television and Aggregate Films.
