TV show description:
This traditional sitcom revolves around Kevin Gable (Kevin James), a newly retired police officer who lives in Massapequa, New York.
After 30 years on the force, Kevin’s looking forward to relaxing and spending quality time with his wife Donna (Erinn Hayes) and their young kids — Sara (Mary-Charles Jones) and Jack (James DiGiacomo).
When his oldest daughter Kendra (Taylor Spreitler) announces she’s dropping out of college to support her tech-wizard fiancé, Chale (Ryan Cartwright), Kevin knows his only choice is to move them both into his converted garage to keep her in school. Kevin was going to rent it out for extra money and now finds that he may need to find another job.
Kevin’s former work buddies graduated from the Academy with him, served on the force together, and retired at the same time. They are Goody (Leonard Earl Howze), Kyle (Gary Valentine), and Duffy (Lenny Venito).
When the second season kicks off, Donna has died, and Kevin is working for his old partner, Vanessa Cellucci (Leah Remini), at her security firm.
