UPN picks up "Home Team" for mid-season

The UPN Network has announced that they have picked up the sitcom "Home Team" from The Jim Henson Company. It will be a mid-season replacement series. This was the series about the widowed basketball coach and his four daughters. It will be interesting to see now what attracted The Jim Henson Company to this project. With no puppets or animatronic characters involved (at least we think not), this would be quite a departure from what they normally produce.

A raucous half hour family comedy, "Home Team" is set inside the high energy household of Nate Harrison, a young widower and college basketball coach with four daughters, three teenagers and a precocious seven-year-old. Nate's at home on the court but when it comes to relating to his girls, he's way out of his element. There's boy-crazy Hope; intelligent but unpopular Anne; athletic yet often empty-headed CJ, and eager young Lucy. There's plenty of love among them, but it's four on one in the game of parent manipulation. Luckily, they all have an advisor, and translator, in "Uncle" Phil, their ever-present neighbor. Starring Greg Evigan as Nate Harrison, Maggie Lawson as Hope, Shawna Waldron as Anne, Andi Eystad as CJ, Brooke Garret as Lucy and Markus Redmond (Doogie Howser, M.D.") as Phil. Russell Markus ("Married With Children"), Margaret Loesch and Brian Henson are the executive producers. The series is a production of The Jim Henson Company.
