Jon Cryer is returning to comedy at NBC Big family alongside Abigail Spencer and Donald Faison.
The Peacock network just got a first look at the sitcom where the cast talks about their experience working together.
“It’s a threesome, but not in a perverse way,” Spencer says in the show’s premise featurette.
Spencer also notes that she has “admired and watched Jon Cryer’s work for many, many years and to actually be in scenes with him is truly unbelievable.” Faison echoed Spencer’s sentiment about working across the Two and a half Men former student saying “It’s a dream come true.”
The Mike O’Malley-created show follows Jim (Cryer) and Julia (Spencer) after an amicable divorce, deciding to continue raising their children in the family home while taking turns deciding who gets them. Navigating the waters of divorce and child sharing becomes more complicated for Jim when Trey (Faison), the owner of his favorite sports team, enters the picture and wins Julia’s heart.
The cast also includes Sofia Capanna and Finn Sweeney. O’Malley serves as showrunner and executive producer. Tom Werner, Jon Cryer, Wyc Grousbeck, Emilia Fazzalari, George Geyer, Victor Levin, Victoria Morrow and James Widdoes are also executive producers.
Lionsgate produces in association with Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
Big family premieres Tuesday, January 2 on NBC.
