Sean (Sean Hayes, “Will & Grace”) is a divorced dad who juggles a lot – his successful but demanding career, offbeat employees, his 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, his 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.

From executive producers Hayes (“Hot in Cleveland,” “Grimm”) and Todd Milliner (“Hot in Cleveland,” “Grimm”), executive producer/director James Burrows (“Friends,” “The Big Bang Theory”) and writer/executive producer Victor Fresco (“Better Off Ted,” “Andy Richter Controls the Universe”), “Sean Saves the World” is a production of Universal Television and Hazy Mills Productions and Garfield Grove.
