ABC wrapped up its Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour Friday with the cast and executive producers of the upcoming new comedy “Home Economics,” starring Topher Grace, who also serves as an executive producer. Joining him on the panel were writers and executive producers Michael Colton and John Aboud, and series stars Caitlin McGee, Jimmy Tatro, Karla Souza and Sasheer Zamata.
“Home Economics” takes a look at the heartwarming yet super uncomfortable and sometimes frustrating relationship between three adult siblings: one in the 1%, one middle-class and one barely holding on. The comedy is inspired by the life of writer and executive producer Michael Colton.
“Home Economics” premieres Wednesday, April 7 (8:30-9 p.m.).
