Call Your Mother
This new multicamera comedy from The New Adventures of Old Christine‘s Kari Lizer follows an empty nester mom who wonders how she ended up alone while her children go on with their lives miles away.

The original series aired from 1965-1967 on the network and became a global sensation. Joining Jones as executive producers are Hunter Seidman, Jennifer Mullin, Alycia Rossiter and Wes Kauble.
