The Peacock will air the comedy, though the net has yet to select a premiere date.
Katie Ford and Jane Ford created and penned the series. “Working the Engels” centers on a family who must band together to keep their heads above water when their father and breadwinner passes away, leaving them with a mountain of debt.
“We’re over the moon thrilled to work with NBC and Shaw Media on this series,” said Noreen Halpern, prez of Halfire-CORE Entertainment. “Katie and Jane Ford have created a laugh-out-loud show and we’re delighted to have a comedic legend in Andrea Martin, complemented by a trio of rising stars.”
Katie Ford, Jane Ford, Howard Busgang, Tom Nursall and Noreen Halpern serve as executive producers.
