Working the Engels series premiere 2014 “Pilot” airs Thursday, July 10th at 9:30pm on NBC

Episode Synopsis: Working the Engels (NBC) Episode 1 “Pilot” – After the accidental suicide attempt of their mother, Ceil (Andrea Martin), the youngest member of the Engel family, Jenna (Kacey Rohl) leaves her job at a big corporate law firm to take over her late father’s law practice with help from her sweet ex-con brother (Benjamin Arthur), narcissistic mother, and self-help obsessed sister (Azura Skye). Colin Mochrie and Jennifer Irwin guest star

Show Summary: In this family comedy, created by Katie Ford (“Miss Congeniality,” “Desperate Housewives”) and Jane Cooper Ford (“Listen Missy,” “Material World”), a family of ne’er-do-wells must band together to keep their heads above water when their father and breadwinner passes away, leaving them a mountain of debt.

The Engels must all go to work running Dad’s storefront law firm, with one minor problem — daughter Jenna Engel (Kacey Rohl) is the only one who is qualified to practice law. Unfortunately for Jenna, this also means taking on her eccentric relatives as co-workers. Ceil (Andrea Martin), the self-absorbed and overly dramatic but fiercely protective mother works as the firm’s paralegal; Sandy (Azura Skye), a former pill-popper who has never worked a day in her life, is the receptionist and first line of defense at the firm; and Jimmy (Ben Arthur), a petty criminal and bad boy who is utterly devoted to his family, is the firm’s investigator. Jenna, the youngest sibling and “good one,” becomes the unlikely family patriarch, running the law firm and keeping her crazy family together.
It’s not pretty, but it’s family.

“Working the Engels” is produced by Halfire Entertainment.
