Just Roll with It (S1)
Breaking through the pack, the innovative new series “Just Roll With It” combines improvisational comedy with a traditional family sitcom. The series allows a studio audience to vote on the direction of key scenes throughout the filming while the actors are backstage—completely unaware of what’s in store for them. This unique series follows the newly blended Bennett-Blatt family—preteen stepsiblings Blair and Owen and their fun-loving parents Rachel and Byron—as they navigate everyday family life and the ups and downs of adolescence while balancing a household of contrasting personalities. Blair, often a rebel without a cause, is the polar opposite of her very regimented but loving mom Rachel, who is a decorated military veteran and station manager for BEATZ 101 in their hometown of Akron, Ohio. Owen, a model student who thrives when following rules and detailed schedules, tries to manage his creative and charismatic father, Byron, an on-air radio personality on BEATZ 101.
At unpredictable intervals unknown to the cast or audience, the scripted action is suddenly interrupted by the sound of a foghorn. The actors are sequestered backstage while the studio audience uses electronic voting devices at their seats to select which of the three comedic scenarios they would like to see take place next. After votes are cast, the crew quickly resets and the actors return to the stage to continue the unscripted scene, improvising throughout it. Through it all, the Bennett-Blatts, and the actors who play them, take whatever life—and the studio audience—throws at them … and they “Just Roll With It.”
