ABC has greenlit single-camera comedy “Home Economics,” which is inspired by the life of co-creator Michael Colton and examines the relationship between three adult siblings: one very upscale, one middle-class, and one barely holding on. Topher Grace (“That ’70s Show”) will play middle sibling Tom, a novelist who has had a couple of books that sold decently, though his last one did not. Caitlin McGee (“Bluff City Law”) portrays the eldest sibling, Sarah, a therapist for at-risk kids married to a teacher with two kids who is scraping to make ends meet. And Jimmy Tatro (“Modern Family”) will play third sibling Connor, who runs his own private equity firm and is outrageously wealthy.
The cast also includes Karla Souza, and Sasheer Zamata. Shiloh Bearman, Jordyn Curet, Chloe Jo Rountree and JeCobi Swain.
“Home Economics” was originally developed as part of the 2020 pilot season but is delayed to a now spring 2021 start due to the pandemic.
