Order of the series ‘Home Economics’ at ABC – Comedy with Topher Grace


ABC is gearing up to give viewers a Domestical economy lesson, with a Spring 2021 comedy series starring and produced by Topher Grace, TVLine learned.

The single-camera comedy explores “the heartwarming, yet super uncomfortable and sometimes frustrating relationship between three adult siblings: one in the 1%, one in the middle class, and one barely holding on,” reads the official synopsis.

Grace (That 70s show) will play middle brother Tom, an intellectual/novelist who’s had a few books that sold decently, though his last one did do not. Caitlin McGee (Bluff City Law) portrays the older sister, Sarah, a therapist for at-risk children who is married to a teacher, and as such they often struggle to make ends meet. Loving mother of her two children, she tries to be a guru for her two brothers, who would obviously be lost without her wisdom.

Finally, Jimmy Tatro (modern family) will play third brother Connor, who has never encountered a corner he hasn’t tried to cut. Conner runs his own private equity firm and is shockingly wealthy. He has a sharp financial mind, but he doesn’t know how to raise his young daughter Gretchen. He recently moved his family to the Bay Area to be closer to his siblings Tom and Sarah. But now he’s learning how his siblings really feel about him.

The cast also includes Karla Souza (How to escape murder) as Marina, Tom’s wife, a proud New Yorker and former lawyer who would like to go back to work one day (if only to escape her children); SNL veterinarian Sasheer Zamata as Denise, Sarah’s wife, a public school teacher with superhuman patience whose relentless positive attitude often puzzles the rest of the family; and a cast of child actors consisting of Shiloh Bearman, Jordyn Starr Curet, Chloe Jo Rountree and JeCobi Swain.

Domestical economy is written by Penguins of Madagascar’s Michael Colton and John Aboud and inspired by the Colton family.
