THE MICK Preview: First Look at Fox’s New Dysfunctional Family Comedy

Mackenzie (a.k.a. Mickey) is a two-bit hustler from Rhode Island when THE MICK begins. And she’s spent her life avoiding any kind of responsibility. To do that, she’s always on the lookout for the next easy payday.

Looking for a handout, Mickey visits her estranged sister and billionaire brother-in-law in Greenwich, CT. But when the couple flees the country to escape federal fraud charges, Mickey is the one assuming guardianship of their three high maintenance children: 18 year old Sabrina (who proves a worthy adversary to Mickey), 13 year old Chip (an arrogant teen) and 7 year old Ben (a fragile nerd). The rich life Mickey always wanted is well within her reach, but now she has to transform these spoiled children into decent members of society. “And as irresponsible as Mickey has been her entire life, she may discover that responsibility and motherhood aren’t the buzzkill she always thought they would be.”
