Yes, Dear

Yes, Dear features a fresh look on problems that face typical American families. Two couples, along with their children struggle to maintain sanity amid martial strife, demanding jobs, and mischievous kids. The young families manage to solve problems sensibly after initially overreacting and acting more immature than their own toddlers.

Anthony Ward Clark plays Greg Warner, a husband who is often emasculated by his well meaning but strong willed wife Kim, played by Jean Louisa Kelly. Their perpetual house guests turned neighbors are constantly adding both comic relief and new problems. Lisa Snyder and Mike O'Malley play fun-loving parents Christine and Jimmy Hughes. Their loose stance on issues such as discipline and cleanliness create frequent conflict with the responsible and organized Warner family.

The two different families and parenting styles are both hilarious and relevant. Modern day parents can easily relate to one or more characters in this sitcom, often finding themselves laughing at something they have done or said themselves at one time or another. The plot appeals to a wide audience of singles, parents, and families that enjoy happy endings and situations they can actually encounter in their own daily lives.
