Fox’s ‘The Mick’ Gets Plum Post-NFL Premiere, New Trailer

Fox’s Kaitlin Olson comedy “The Mick” will be premiering on New Year’s Day 2017, following a Sunday NFL doubleheader. After its special Jan. 1 debut, the show will move to its regular Tuesday slot at 8:30 starting Jan. 3.

In “The Mick,” Olson, of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” fame, is brash Rhode Islander MacKenzie, a.k.a. Mickey. Mickey is tasked with the guardianship of her sister’s three high-maintenance kids after said sister lands in jail for an extended period of time. There’s a bit of an adjustment period for the responsibility-shy Mickey, but she eventually comes to find that maybe being saddled with these kids isn’t the worst thing in the world.

The series also stars Sofia Black D’Elia (“The Night Of”), Thomas Barbusca (“Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life”), newcomer Jack Stanton, Carla Jimenez (“Last Man Standing”) and newcomer Scott MacArthur.

“The Mick” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, created and written by John Chernin (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and David Chernin (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”). The Chernin brothers, Nick Frenkel (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and Oly Obst (“Barely Famous”), along with Randall Einhorn (“Nurse Jackie,” “The Office”), who directed the pilot episode, are executive producers. Kaitlin Olson is a co-executive producer on the series.
