Normally I wouldn't think Sean Astin and Cheri Oteri would be entrusted with the leads in a comedy, but I can see why they went for it: we've got Rob Schiller at the helm! Yes, that Rob Schiller. Rob Schiller of the episode of two episodes of The Sinbad Show, two episodes of The Wayans Bros., over 160 Kings of Queens, and literally hundreds of other zany comedy episodes. He has so many sitcom situations under his belt, he'll have a wacky scheme ready for virtually any potential mishap.
