Top 10: New Fall Comedy Premieres

the mick

10. “The Mick” (Fox)

Starring: Kaitlin Olson, Sophia Black-D’Elia, Susan Park, Thomas Barbusca, Jack Stanton, Carla Jimenez
Synopsis: Mickey (Olson) is a foul-mouthed woman with a tenacity for avoiding responsibility. But when her rich sister and her husband flee the country, Mickey is forced to take care of her sister’s spoiled kids.

Why you should watch: Olson has been a vital staple to the insane ensemble on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” for over a decade, playing the morally-bankrupt Dee, daughter of Dany DeVito’s character. Proving she’s capable of juggling two series at the same time (FXX has renewed “It’s Always Sunny” for two more seasons), Olson will get her top-billing on “The Mick” in which she stars and co-executive produces. Her character Mickey is described as loud, inappropriate and self-centered. So if you like Olson on “It’s Always Sunny,” you should enjoy her immoral alter-ego on full display in her new series.
Premiere Date: 2017
