DEADLINE – Fox has set Wednesday, December 4 for the premiere of holiday comedy event series The Moodys. The adaptation of the Australian series, starring Denis Leary and Elizabeth Perkins, will air over three nights, with back-to-back episodes beginning Wednesday, December 4 at 9 and 9:30 PM on Fox. The series continues the following week with back-to-back episodes on Monday, December 9 and Tuesday, December 10, also at 9 and 9:30 PM.
Written by comedy veterans Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg and Tad Quill, The Moodys follows a tight-knit, but slightly dysfunctional family of five, all of whom gather in their hometown of Chicago for the “perfect” holiday. From break-ups to arrests to sharing one bathroom, each family member is packing his/her own eccentricities and hiding secrets from the others.
The family includes Sean Sr. (Leary), his wife, Ann (Perkins), and their three grown children – Dan (Francois Arnaud), the youngest of the siblings and the “creative one”; Bridge (Chelsea Frei), the middle sister and the “overachiever”; and Sean Jr. (Jay Baruchel), the oldest sibling and “screw-up,” still living at home with his parents.
Cast also includes Maria Gabriela de Faria, Josh Segarra, Kevin Bigley, Gerry Dee, Ulka Simone Mohanty and Megan Park.
