SUBURGATORY: Jeremy Sisto Talks About His New Series

September 28, 2011 by  

ABC debuts their new comedy, SUBURGATORY, tonight at 8:30, and if you miss one of the season’s best new comedies you will regret it.

So what is the series about? According to ABC, “Tessa and George have been on their own ever since Tessa’s mom pulled a “Kramer vs. Kramer.” So far George has done a pretty good job of raising Tessa without a maternal figure in their lives, but suddenly he’s feeling a little out of his league, especially after he finds a pack of condoms in her room. So it’s goodbye New York City and hello suburbs. At first Tessa is horrified by the big-haired, fake-boobed mothers and their sugar-free, Red Bull-chugging kids. But little by little, she and her dad begin to find a way to survive on the clean streets of the ‘burbs. Sure, the neighbors might smother you with love while their kids stare daggers at your back, but underneath all that plastic and caffeine, they’re really not half bad. Being in the ‘burbs can be hell, but it also may just bring Tessa and George closer than they’ve ever been.”

There’s certainly a fish-out-of-water element — which is a familiar concept for pilots — but the show manages to have warmth, brains and actually be (gasp!) funny.

I talked with series star Jeremy Sisto (George) at the recent Paley Center Fall TV Preview party, and we discussed what drew him to the role, George’s parenting skills, his character’s love life and more…

SUBURGATORY premieres at 8:30 PM on ABC. Will you be tuning in?
