WIFE GRACE LEE
Age 39, a medical technician; mom of two with another on the way (actually, she’s about to find out they’re having twins): a social media-savvy soccer mom with a good sense of humor.
DAUGHTER AMY Lee
Age 12, smart, precocious, little kid/big personality —a little bit “Young Sheldon,” a little bit “Modern Family” with a twist of “Wonder Years”: Amy is ‘the glue’ of our show and has to be able to carry a lot of narration

CORE CLIENT: THE MILLERS (Mid 40s to mid 50s homeowners)
Age 16: first time driver, sings in a local rock band; strong willed, opinionated, the youngest child who will definitely forge her own path — this character must sing.
