FOX announced its new fall schedule, which includes “Us & Them,” a single-camera ensemble with a rom-com vibe, standing by for a mid-season bow.
Jason Ritter (“Parenthood”) and Alexis Bledel (“Mad Men,” “Gilmore Girls”) star as Gavin and Stacy in a clever-feeling comedy that’s based on an award-winning BBC series. FOX describes the show as being “about a young couple, whose path to happily-ever-after is complicated by the screwed-up circus of people closest to them.”
Those people happen to include Jane Kaczmarek and Kurt Fuller as Gavin’s parents. And Michael Ian Black is a nice addition to Stacy’s clan. In the trailer, both of the lovebirds’ families are reticent about the as-yet relative strangers meeting in person, and hilarity ensues — including “panic dancing” by Gavin, and puking by Stacy.
