First Look: Parenting Is Tough in ABC’s New Comedy ‘United We Fall’ (VIDEO)
The kids are running their parents ragged in ABC’s newest comedy, United We Fall, premiering this July.
TV Insider has an exclusive look at the first promo airing in primetime this Sunday, and Will Sasso’s Bill Ryan and Christina Vidal Mitchell’s Jo Rodriguez are kept quite busy by their family.
It all starts at 7:05 a.m. as they get ready for the day. “How is it so early and we’re already so late?” Bill asks. Watch the video below to see the couple reminisce about their lives pre-kids and compare it to their present. Let’s just say, things are a little messier these days…

United We Fall premieres on Wednesday, July 15, with back-to-back episodes at 8/7c. This “profoundly realistic family sitcom” follows Jo and Bill as they raise two young kids and remain united against his very judgmental live-in mother, Sandy (Jane Curtin), Jo’s large Latinx Catholic family, and everyone else, especially their kids.
The comedy also stars Guillermo Diaz as Chuy Rodriguez and Ella Grace Helton as Emily Ryan. Julius “Goldy” Sharpe wrote and executive produced the pilot. Seth Gordon and Julia Gunn also serve as executive producers.
Mark Cendrowski, who directed the pilot and is also known for his work on The Big Bang Theory, previously told TV Insider he thinks viewers will like the characters of ABC’s new comedy. “This is a family you want to root for and it’s funny, too,” he said. “They’re real people, and that’s something I tried to bring that we always did at Big Bang. These are real people, and you don’t have to do things too big and broad. Play the reality of it and people will relate to it and find it funny.”
