“Growing Pains” patriarch Alan Thicke is heading back to the small screen in the new hybrid reality sitcom “Unusually Thicke” on TVGN.

“Unusually Thicke”  — a reality-based series blended with situational comedy that Thicke describes as a “real life ‘Modern Family'” — will premiere on Wednesday, April 16 at 10 PM.

The show stars his Bolivian-born wife Tanya, and his 16-year-old wise-cracking son Carter. Thicke’s pop singer son Robin, who is best known for last summer’s R&B hit, “Blurred Lines,” will also make an appearance.

“We see this as falling somewhere between Larry David and the Kardashians,” Thicke explains. “We have some fun with real life and embellish it with plot.”
