“I HATE MY TEENAGE DAUGHTER”
TO PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, ON FOX
I HATE MY TEENAGE DAUGHTER, the new family comedy starring Jaime Pressly and Katie Finneran as single moms, best friends – and former nerds – who fear their privileged and overly indulged daughters are turning out just like the mean girls who picked on them in high school, will now debut on Wednesday, Nov. 30 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) after THE X FACTOR on FOX.
Annie (Pressly), who was raised in an ultra-strict, über-religious household where she had little-to-no freedom, pretty much allows her daughter, SOPHIE (Kristi Lauren), to do whatever she wants. Annie’s best friend Nikki (Finneran), once an unpopular, overweight social pariah, is now a pretty Southern belle who also allows her daughter, MACKENZIE (Aisha Dee), to do as she pleases. The moms have given the girls everything they asked for and everything they never had: clothes, money and self-esteem. The unintended consequence is they have created two mean girls just like the ones who tortured them years ago. The series also stars Eric Sheffer Stevens as Annie’s ex-husband MATT who wants to be a good parent, but doesn’t know what that even means; Kevin Rahm as Matt’s brother JACK, a father figure to Sophie who’s meddling would annoy Annie more if she didn’t have such a crush on him; and Chad L. Coleman as GARY, Nikki’s ex-husband who also tries to help raise his challenging daughter but the couple’s complicated relationship often makes his involvement more difficult.
