The project will center on a divorced couple who successfully co-parent in a blended multiracial family. The storyline is inspired by Brady’s personal life experience. The ‘Whose Line is It Anyway’ alum who is in a blended family himself, spent the pandemic with his daughter, ex-wife, Taketa, and Taketa’s boyfriend.

While speaking to Access Hollywood, he said ⁠It was that experience that inspired the series.⁠

He said that he has been spending a lot of time with his ex-wife, her boyfriend and their daughter while in quarantine. “It’s been natural for us. We didn’t need a quarantine to do this, we’ve been doing it for Maile’s whole life,” Brady said. “Now we have a sitcom that we are working on with our friends who were the showrunners over at Will & Grace, Tracy and Jon. We’re writing a script about our life as a blended family, we call ourselves the ‘core four.’”⁠

This sounds interesting, I love shows the few shows that showcase positive co-parenting.⁠
