CBS is introducing a new family comedy series, but it has a twist: LIFE IN PIECES tells four separate stories in each episode…but they all are centered around one extended family, and the very separate relationship stages its members are in.

John and Joan are the long-married parents of three adult children: Heather, the eldest, is married to Tim, and they have three kids of their own; Matt is the middle child, and he’s in a new relationship with Colleen (who still shares a home with her ex-fiance);  and the youngest is Greg, who just had his first child with his wife, Jen.

In addition to the show’s unique storytelling format, the series is also getting a plum launching pad — it’s airing after THE BIG BANG THEORY.

“I’ve been a part of other shows that were not so widely beloved or supported by the network, so I’m blown away, to be totally honest with you; I think CBS is doing all they can to make the show a hit,” LIFE IN PIECES star Angelique Cabral (Colleen) shared. “It’s a sweet family show that everyone will be able to relate to. I think there’s a little bit for everyone: it catches…all of the stages of life. I think it’s very palatable for Americans, with the short format, with the four stories; I think it’s going to be good for short attention spans. I actually think people are going to love that. I hope it changes the tide of TV. It feels amazing. I’m pinching myself every day.”

Cabral’s co-star, Betsy Brandt (Heather), echoed that it was the show’s unique angle that helped draw her to it.
