'Growing Up Fisher'

Slide 1 of 13

It's not every family that's brought closer together by divorce, but then again, the Fishers are anything but typical. Take Mel Fisher (J.K. Simmons), for example. He's chopping down trees, showing his daughter how to drive, and playing football with his son… except that Mel's blind.Then there's Joyce (Jenna Elfman), who is your typical teenager - really into fashion, busy with school - but the problem is she's Mom. That makes it difficult for her actual teenage daughter, Katie (Ava Deluca-Verley), whose advice (and clothes) Joyce is always seeking.At the center of all this is Henry (Eli Baker), the Fishers' 11-year-old son. Having always been his dad's eyes and wingman, Henry is less than thrilled when his job is outsourced to Mel's new guide dog, Elvis. While the boy is at first reluctant to accept the changes that Elvis brings, adult Henry (voiceover by Jason Bateman) realizes upon reflection that his parents' split finally allowed the Fishers to become one happy (divorced) family." Bing: More about 'Growing Up Fisher' | Which NBC pilot will be the next to go to series?Want more TV?
