NBC has entered a deal to co-produce 12 episodes of the half-hour singlecam comedy â€œWorking the Engelsâ€ from producers Halfire-CORE Entertainment in partnership with Shaw Media. â€œWorking the Engelsâ€ marks the first time a U.S. and Canadian broadcaster have collaborated to produce a half-hour network comedy. The series, created and written by Katie Ford and Jane Ford, centers on a family who must band together to keep their heads above water when their father and breadwinner passes away, leaving them a mountain of debt. The Engels must all go to work running Dadâ€™s storefront law firm, with one minor problem â€” daughter Jenna is the only one who is qualified to practice law.
Premiere Date: Mar/12/2014
