Nick at Nite will premiere its first-ever original live-action family comedy executive produced by and starring Scott Baio, See Dad Run tonight, Oct. 6, it was announced by Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon Group. A multi-camera scripted half-hour, the series follows David Hobbs (Baio) an actor who, after ten years of starring as America's favorite TV dad, becomes a stay-at-home father to honor the deal he made with his soap star wife (Alanna Ubach, Meet the Fockers) so that she may return to the limelight. Mark Curry (Hangin' with Mr. Cooper) also joins the series as David's friend, Marcus. The series is currently in production on the former Happy Days stage in Los Angeles.
"See Dad Run represents an important milestone for Nick at Nite," explains Cohn. "The proven comic appeal of Scott Baio combined with a stellar production team to create a funny, modern relatable family sitcom fits perfectly into Nick's prime time strategy of entertaining every member of the family. We at Nick are thrilled to add this funny show to our arsenal!"
In See Dad Run, David Hobbs has spent the last decade playing the perfect father on one of TV's biggest sitcoms. But when the series ends and his wife resumes her own television career, he finds himself cast in his most challenging role to date: handling the day-to-day needs of three kids who've grown accustomed to not having him around. David soon learns that playing a dad on TV is child's play compared to the real thing. Rounding out the cast are Ryan Newman (Zeke and Luther) and Bailey Michelle Brown as David's daughters, Emily and Janie, and Jackson Brundage (One Tree Hill) as David's son, Joe. Additionally, Ramy Youssef plays David's assistant, Kevin.

I was wondering why this was posted!
I think the original script of SEE DAD RUN
was to have starred Sasha and Malia Obama, but then
the debate happened.
But what makes it worse is how Fox News et al has been giving the world at large updates about this poor woman's downward spiral. You would think someone would allow her some dignity.
