TV show description:
Hank Pryor (Kelsey Grammer) is a highly-successful sports retail entrepreneur in New York City. His life changes dramatically when he’s forced out as CEO of the company he built and has to downsize and move his family back to the small town of River Bend, Virginia. It’s a struggle for Hank. He’s lost nearly everything and, after so many years with the upper crust, doesn’t know how to mingle with the little people.
Tilly Pryor (Melinda McGraw), Hank’s wife, deeply regrets having to leave her high-society life in New York City but is committed to making the best of it. Her brother, small-town contractor Grady Funk (David Koechner), is there to help but really enjoys that Hank has fallen from his lofty pedestal. He tells Hank that, if there’s anything he can do for him in his time of need and failure, to just let him know.
Hank and Tilly’s daughter, Maddie (Jordan Hinson), doesn’t appreciate making the move to Virginia either. As a New York City teenager, she’s had to leave behind all that she valued most, including her hip status. She doesn’t approve of much that her dad does and her mother has nicknamed her “Moody Maddie.”
Young Henry (Nathan Gamble) is quite the opposite of his sister. Yoda is his hero and he’d much rather play with his action figures than play sports. When Hank asks Henry if he’d like to go throw the baseball, Henry replies, “At what?”
Neither Tilly nor the kids are used to having Hank around the house. In many ways, they’re virtual strangers and getting to know one another turns out to be the biggest adjustment of all.
