Combine an A-plus cast with clever writing about a taboo subject – the financial disparity between adult siblings – and you’ve got a sitcom worth its weight in comedy gold.
In season 1 of Domestical economy, the Hayworths – struggling author Tom (Topher thanks), woke up younger sister Sarah (Caitlin McGee) and baby brother Connor (Jimmy tatro), the weak but wealthy venture capitalist – got us cracked while clashing over personal loans, expensive vacations, and wage inequality.
Executive producer Michael Colton based the show, and his surplus heart, on his own parents. “It’s a family comedy about a loving family too much a lot, ”he laughs. “They get really angry because they think they know best and just want to help.”
The fun continues in Season 2 as Tom draws closer to publishing his Hayworth-inspired novel, therapist Sarah finds work at the private school attended by Connor’s daughter Gretchen (Shiloh Bearman), and Connor is dating. one of Sarah’s friends.
But first, he sparks an argument when he scores luxury passes in a San Francisco 49ers game, but not enough for everyone. With Tom’s wife, Marina (Karla Souza) and Sarah’s wife, Denise (Sasheer Zamata), “They find a way to play the game on themselves,” promises co-creator John Aboud. Invaluable.
