An 8-year-old genius attempts to keep the peace between his progressive, uptight super mom and his live-in, conservative and judgmental grandmother.
BETTY SHOEMAKER, Frances McGarry
Grandmother/mother-in-law. Early 60s. Outspoken, abrasive and politically incorrect. Old-school conservative view on life and parenting. Recently divorced. Brutally honest with no filter. Traditional family values. Stubborn. Clashes with daughter-in-law Jane’s progressive views.
Nostalgic: references the good ol’ days. Technologically-challenged. Great cook, but a lot of her meals are unhealthy (sticks of butter). Second-guesses almost everything her son/DIL do. Tough exterior, but viewers empathize with her love of family and her need to feel wanted/respected.
