Huh, Sean Hayes´s comeback to TV was not as big nor long as everyone expected. He is still is funny self, but the show was just not that good, so NBC cancelled Sean Saves the World, and perhaps more shows will follow (Maybe Community does get a Sixth Season and a Movie after all).
Sean (Sean Hayes, “Will & Grace”) is a divorced dad who juggles a lot — his successful but demanding career, offbeat employees, pushy mom, Lorna (Linda Lavin, “Alice”), and weekends with his teenage daughter, Ellie (Samantha Isler). So when his 14-year-old bundle of joy moves in full time, it’s a whole new world.
Never one to do anything halfway, Sean’s intent on being the best dad ever, so he loads up on parenting how-to books and plans Pinterest-worthy family dinners. But it seems his company’s new owner (Thomas Lennon, “Reno 911!”) has decided Sean and his team should work longer hours, putting a damper on his homemaking plans and throwing a kink in Sean’s perfectly constructed work/life balance. Ellie, a normal girl who wants to hang with her friends and eat on the run, sees this development as a plus. She loves her dad, but he’s clearly going overboard.
From keeping his boss happy, employees motivated and enduring his mother’s tactless “advice” to raising a smart, grounded and healthy kid, it’s going to be a growing experience, to say the least. But if anyone can handle it all, it’s Sean.
Echo Kellum (“Ben and Kate”) also stars.
And now the show´s been cancelled and pulled from the schedule effective immediately and the two more episodes filmed have an unclear future.
