Disney has announced a brand new comedy series called “Home Economics”, which stars and is executive produced by Topher Grace.
“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.
The series stars Topher Grace as Tom, Caitlin McGee as Sarah, Jimmy Tatro as Connor, Karla Souza as Marina, and Sasheer Zamata as Denise. Also starring is Shiloh Bearman as Gretchen, Jordyn Curet as Shamiah, Chloe Jo Rountree as Camila and JeCobi Swain as Kelvin.
“Home Economics” was created by writers Michael Colton & John Aboud. They serve as executive producers alongside Topher Grace and Eric and Kim Tannenbaum of The Tannenbaum Company, whose Jason Wang will co-executive produce. The series is produced by Lionsgate and ABC Signature.
“Home Economics” will join the Wednesday night comedy block on ABC in the United States and will premiere on Wednesday, April 7th at 8:30-9:00 p.m (EST). Expect episodes of this series to be available on Hulu the following day.
Unfortunately, no international release details have yet been announced, but with many of the new shows from ABC now being distributed internationally on Disney+ as “Star Originals”, “Home Economics” could possibly also be available on Disney+ internationally. Lionsgate is co-producing the series and they make a variety of shows for a number of different streaming platforms including Netflix, so it’s possible that international distribution for this series could be handled by Lionsgate.
