Back in the Game has sports, family and humor, not to mention an underdog story about a group of rejected baseball playing kids who have formed their own team, thanks to Maggie Lawson's determined character Terry Gannon Jr. If it had football and Ed O'Neill, it'd be Little Giants. Alas, O'Neill is busy with the comedy that airs after Back in the Game on Wednesday nights, come this fall. But this one does have the excellent James Caan, who serves as Terry's estranged father.
Here's ABC's full description for Back in the Game…
With its emphasis on kids and family, Back in the Game looks like it'll be a great fit to air between The Middle and Modern Family. Factor in the draw of Psych's Maggie Lawson and Vegas' James Caan and there are two more reasons to tune in. I'm not sure the trailer really sells me on the humor and heart that the premise potentially offers, so we'll have to wait and see how the pilot looks. In the meantime, there's certainly enough going for it in the cast and concept to look forward to this one when it premieres this fall.
ABC has Back in the Game scheduled to air Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET. Check out the full ABC Fall 2013 schedule here.
