FOX adds 'I Hate My Teenage Daughter' to pickup list
It joins another comedy, the Zooey Deschanel-starring "The New Girl," and dramas "Alcatraz" and "The Finder" (along with the previously picked up "Terra Nova") on the network's list of new series for 2011-12.
Unlike the rest of the half-hour comedies FOX has tried in the past couple seasons, "I Hate My Teenage Daughter" is a multi-camera show. Its title is pretty much its premise: The show focuses on two moms ( Jaime Pressly of "My Name Is Earl" and Katie Finneran of "Wonderfalls" and "The Inside") who fear their daughters are turning into the kinds of girls who tormented them in high school.
Ellen Kreamer and Sherry Bilsing-Graham ("The New Adventures of Old Christine") created the show, whose cast also includes Kevin Rahm ("Desperate Housewives"), Rosa Blasi ("Make It or Break It"), Kristi Coleman and Chad Coleman ("The Wire").
