Series Info

A working-class Staten Island family of five is headed by a couple in their early 30s (parents since their late teens), who struggle to be cool, youthful and, most of all, responsible in dealing with their kids: Lily, who's dating; Jimmy, who's good in school; and the mischievous Henry.
