A close-knit, sports-crazed Boston family, "The McCarthys," deal with life in the most hilarious way possible. Ronny, played by Tyler Ritter, the somewhat athletically challenged gay son, is chosen by his father to be his assistant high school basketball coach, much to the surprise of his more qualified siblings.
"I think first and foremost it is a really funny show. We’ve got some of the funniest guys writing it, and the cast is just full of amazing actors," says star Tyler Ritter.
Family matriarch Marjorie McCarthy, played by Laurie Metcalf, cannot believe that her son would want to leave Boston and the family to join the singles scene in the hopes of finding a partner. She recruits the rest of the family to try everything they can to keep him home. Plans change suddenly when Ronny's father stuns everyone with his choice for a new an assistant coach. Touched by his father’s offer, Ronny embarks on a completely different future – and he can be sure that his loving family, including his twin brothers Sean and Gerard and his sister Jackie, are going to have a very vocal opinion about it.
"The McCarthys" stars Tyler Ritter as Ronny, Laurie Metcalf as Marjorie, Jack McGee at the father Arthur McCarthy, Joey McIntyre and Jimmy Dunn as twin brothers Gerard and Sean McCarthy and Kelen Coleman as Jackie McCarthy.
