Just screened The Mick at Fox Studios in Los Angeles last night followed by a fun Q&A and reception with the show's star, Kaitlin Olson. This hilarious new single-camera comedy premiers on Fox on January 1, 2016. If you think you're family is dysfunctional, wait till you see this wacky of the wackiest bunch of relatives!

Before viewers know it, mom and dad are off to a far away place (sorry can't tell you where: you'll have to watch the premier episode to find out), leaving Auntie in charge against her will with the couple's three spoiled entitled kids: Sabrina (18), Chip (13) and Ben (7).

Despite the fact she doesn't want to babysit these brats nor is she refined enough to navigate their snooty lifestyle, Aunt Mickey is bent on sticking this unlikely dysfunctional family scenario out. Heck or high water she wants to turn these ingrates born with silver spoons in their mouths into honest, hard-working contributors to society -- something, ironically, that's not really her forte.

But The Mick, created by John and Dave Chernin, the same brilliant brothers who brought us It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (starring Kaitlin Olson as "Dee") is something more than just another sitcom. It also intends to try to do something television has yet to do well: tackle today's tough issues like gender, race, social inequality and more, in a way that's never been done before.
