Charter Communications' premium content initiative, Spectrum Originals, has picked up the limited series that will include the original cast. Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt will reprise their roles as Paul and Jamie Buchman and it will center on empty-nesters Paul and Jamie as they navigate their marriage; the trials of ‘middle age’ and their unpredictable, hard-to-control daughter Mabel.
“We promise you the same funny and heartwarming show - as soon as we can remember what’s funny about being older. It’s going to be great!" - Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt
