Growing Up Fisher Tuesdays on NBC (9:30-10 p.m. ET); Series Premiere: February 25; Special Preview: Sunday, February 23 (10:30-11 p.m. ET), following Olympic Coverage of the Closing Ceremonies It's not every family that's brought closer together by divorce, but then again, the Fishers are anything but typical. Take Mel Fisher (J.K. Simmons, "The Closer," "Law & Order"), for example. He's chopping down trees, showing his daughter how to drive, and playing football with his son ... except that Mel's blind. Then there's Joyce (Jenna Elfman, "Dharma & Greg," "1,600 Penn"), who is your typical teenager — really into fashion, busy with school — but the problem is she's Mom. That makes it difficult for her actual teenage daughter, Katie (Ava Deluca-Verley, "Southland"), whose advice (and clothes) Joyce is always seeking. At the center of all this is Henry (Eli Baker), the Fisher's 11-year-old son. Having always been his dad's eyes and wingman, Henry is less than thrilled when his job is outsourced to Mel's new guide dog, Elvis. While he is at first reluctant to accept the changes that Elvis brings, adult Henry realizes upon reflection (voiceover by Jason Bateman, "Arrested Development," "Identity Thief") that his parent's split finally allows the Fishers to become one happy (divorced) family. Based on his life, DJ Nash ("Up All Night," "Bent") serves as executive producer, along with Bateman, Jim Garavente ("Identity Thief") and Tucker Cawley ("Up All Night," "Everybody Loves Raymond"). "Growing Up Fisher" is a production of Universal Television and Aggregate Films.
