Life In Pieces (CBS 2015, James Brolin, Dianne West)

Published

on

Life In Pieces is a sitcom about one big happy family and their sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments as told by its various members.

Of the three siblings, middle child Matt (Thomas Sadoski) may have just found his true love, his co-worker, Colleen (Angelique Cabral); his coddled youngest brother, Greg (Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee Colin Hanks), and his wife, Jen (Zoe Lister Jones), are overwhelmed by the birth of their first child; and the eldest, Heather (Betsy Brandt), and her husband, Tim (Dan Bakkedahl), are dreading their impending empty nest so much, they’re considering having another baby.

Their parents are Joan (Academy, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Dianne Wiest), the family’s adoring matriarch who would do anything for her kids – as long as she agrees with it – and John (Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner James Brolin), the gregarious patriarch who’s searching for ways to soften the blow of turning 70. As the family’s lives unfold in four short stories each week, they try to savor these little pieces of time that flash by but stay with you forever, because these moments add up to what life’s all about.

From CBS’s press release, August 2016…
SEASON FINALE: At a party celebrating the launch of Matt and Colleen’s new children’s book, different family members made a series of surprise announcements that derailed Matt’s plan to propose to Colleen in front of the guests: Jen and Greg revealed they are pregnant with their second child – and that Greg is newly unemployed; John and Joan decided to remarry (after divorcing as a political statement to support gay marriage in the ’70s); and Tyler surprised his family by eloping with Clementine, his high school girlfriend. Despite the chaos, Matt finally proposed to Colleen, and she tearfully accepted.
COMING UP: In the season premiere, Matt moves into Colleen’s apartment but faces some serious resistance from Colleen’s roommate; Heather and Tim reach out to Clementine’s parents (guest stars Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman) to get Tyler and Clementine’s (new series regular Hunter King) marriage annulled; John lands in the hospital after some medication results in an embarrassing side effect; and Jen and Greg are forced to reveal a secret when they walk into a surprise baby shower.
