Travis plays Patty, Doug’s (Hodge) overbearing mother and Alice’s (Robb) nightmare mother-in-law. She is a social climber dying for a grandchild and has no problem getting into Alice and Doug’s business about why they’re taking so long.

Avitia portrays Ford, Joel (Davis) and Misty’s son. An uninspired student with no direction, he’s surprised by Birdie’s (Fumero) sudden interest in helping him make his way in the world.

Maggie Kiley is directing the pilot, which she is executive producing with Bans via her Minnesota Logging Co., Krebs and Casey Kyber.
