Synopsis of the Show: 

Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn’t mean his family isn’t still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his granparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he’s been offered a dream job–one that would take him awy from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. They plot to keep him in town. Enter single, beautiful Caitlin, a new guest at Sunday dinner…

Nick Cristano – in his thirties
Frank Gianelli – Nick’s Maternal Grandfather, Eighty Years Old
Aida Gianelli – Nick’s maternal grandmother, in her seventies
Nunzio Cristano – Nick’s paternal grandfather, in his seventies
Emma Cristano – Nick’s paternal grandmother, in her seventies
Caitlin O’Hare – attractive and charming, in her late twenties
