FOX has renewed Kaitlin Olson vehicle, The Mick (FOX, Tuesdays, 8:30/7:30C).
The Mick is a comedy about an unapologetic degenerate (Kaitlin Olson) who suddenly finds herself stuck raising her spoiled niece (Sofia Black-D’Elia, “The Night Of”) and nephews (Thomas Barbusca, “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life”; newcomer Jack Stanton) in affluent Greenwich, CT.
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.
It’s not always easy to enjoy a series in which every character is reprehensible, but It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia [FX, Thursdays, 10/9C] frequently succeeds in making its audience do just that. One of the reasons it can do that is the presence of Kaitlin Olson as Deandra ‘Sweet Dee’ Reynolds.
Earlier this week I had the opportunity to take part in a teleconference call with the delightful Ms. Olson, who talked about the show and how she manages to keep Dee fresh.
