The comedy pilot Instant Mom, starring Tia Mowry-Hardrict was set to begin airing its 13 episode order on Nick at Nite, however, in a big twist, the series will debut on NickMom instead while repeats will be shown on Nick At Nite.
Instant Mom was created by Warren Bell and Jessica Butler, and will be the first scripted series for the primetime TV block.
According to Deadline, Bell and Butler are no longer involved in the production of the series. Instead, Howard Gould (The Jeff Foxworthy Show) and Aaron Kaplan will serve as executive producers.
If you tune in to watch the series later this year, you will see a young party girl named Stephanie (Mowry-Hardrict) who becomes an instant mom when she marries an older man, Charlie (Michael Boatman), who has three kids. Her role as a full-time step-mom slowly grows on her, but she can’t help trying to maintain some sense of her fun-loving, slightly irresponsible life.
Sheryl Lee Ralph stars as Stephanie’s mother Maggie, and rounding out the cast are the three kids played by Sydney Park, Tylen Williams and Damarr Calhoun.
Tia Mowry has kept herself very busy since leaving The Game last year. The actress has managed to release a book (Oh Baby!: Pregnancy Tales and Advice from One Hot Mama to Another), a fitness DVD, and currently has a product line called MILKY in the works.
Onscreen, the actress can be seen starring in the upcoming Fox Searchlight Pictures film, Baggage Claim, due out fall 2013 and alongside sister Tamera Mowry-Housley on the STYLE network series Tia & Tamera, which she also executive produces.
All this, and she still has time to be a wife to actor Corey Hardrict and a mother to their 1-year-old son Cree Taylor. Tia Mowry’s real life experience should certainly help her channel “Stephanie” in her new Instant Mom TV series.
