Julia (Brittany Snow, “Pitch Perfect”) discovers her famous fertility doctor dad (Timothy Hutton, “American Crime”) used his own genetic material to conceive of dozens of children, including, possibly, a guy she recently slept with. Oops!
Soon Julia discovers two new sisters, Edie (Megalyn Echikunwoke, “The Following”) and ex-Olympic athlete Roxy (Emily Osment, “Young & Hungry”), and familial bonds begin to form. It could be a sweet sister show -- if it wasn’t (literally) born of some rather despicable actions by the skeevy doc.
“We are going to take very seriously the consequences of his actions, and there's going to be a very serious contending with what it meant to the people who didn't consent to this behavior, but we are also going to get into more complex motivations,” said executive producer Annie Weisman during Fox’s portion of the Television Critics Association summer 2019 press tour. “In any story, it's important to feel empathy and understanding for every character.”
