This TV situation comedy centers around a former NFL star who learns that, you can always go home again but it's isn't as easy as it sounds. Mike Trainor (Michael Strahan) seems to have it all. He's a newly retired NFL star who's good-looking and wealthy. Mike is enjoying his life in New York City until his business manager runs off with all of his money. After hearing this, his mom orders him to move back home. When he does, Mike realizes that, though his life has changed in many ways, the family dynamics have remained the same. Chill (Daryl "Chill" Mitchell) is Mike's brother. His life has changed as well, but it was as the result of a car accident that left him wheelchair-bound. This puts a strain on him and makes it difficult to keep his sports-themed restaurant going. The publicity of having a famous brother could help his business, but Chill really doesn't want Mike's help. Their relationship is much the same as it was when they were kids. If they could learn to finally get along, it could be good for both of them.
Mike and Chill's parents, Coach and Adele (Carl Weathers and CCH Pounder), are caught in the middle. Coach is the football coach of the local high school. He's conservative and opinionated, and thinks he runs the house, but it's really Adele who's doing it. She's saucy, stern, and a bit of a schemer.
