Kaitlin Olson‘s new comedy series “The Mick” has landed a New Year’s Day premiere on Fox, following the NFL doubleheader, the network announced on Wednesday.
The series, from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” duo John and David Chernin, will debut on Sunday, Jan. 1 at 8 p.m. PT/ET, then it will make its regular timeslot premiere on Tuesday, Jan. 3 at 8:30 p.m. PT/ET.
Fox also released a new trailer for “The Mick,” which can be seen above.
“The Mick” follows Mackenzie, a.k.a. Mickey (Olson), a brash, two-bit hustler from Rhode Island who must assume guardianship of her sister’s three high-maintenance children. As irresponsible as Mickey has been her entire life, she may discover that responsibility isn’t the buzzkill she always thought it would be.
The series also stars Sofia Black D’Elia (“The Night Of”), Thomas Barbusca (“Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life”), Carla Jimenez (“Last Man Standing”), and newcomers Jack Stanton and Scott MacArthur.
Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, the series was created and written by the Chernin brothers, who serve as executive producers alongside Nick Frenkel (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), Oly Obst (“Barely Famous”) and Randall Einhorn (“Nurse Jackie,” “The Office”), who directed the pilot episode. Olson is a co-executive producer.
