When two-bit loser Mickey’s rich sister and brother-in-law are sent to prison, she is stuck with looking after their three ultra-high maintenance kids – and putting the irresponsible Mickey in charge is not even close to a good idea.
That’s the premise of FOX’s new comedy series, The Mick – which is getting a primo premiere following FOX’s NFL doubleheader on Sunday, January 1st (8/7C) before settling into its regular time slot on Tuesday, January 3rd (8:31/7:31C).
The Mick stars Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as Mickey. For an extended teaser and series description, read on.

THE MICK follows MACKENZIE, aka “MICKEY” (Kaitlin Olson, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), a brash, two-bit hustler from Rhode Island who must assume guardianship of her sister’s three high-maintenance children.
