Notes from the Underbelly premieres April 11

notes from the underbellyBarry Sonnenfeld (Addams Family, Men in Black) is executive producing the new ABC comedy Notes from the Underbelly, about a couple, Andrew and Lauren (Peter Cambor and Jennifer Westfeldt) who become pregnant and must deal with advice from their friends and family while also dealing with the pressures of giving up their once carefree lifestyle for a more mature one. See Joel's take on the series here (he didn't like it much).

The couple's friends include overzealous parents Julie (Melanie Paxson) and Eric (Sunkrish Bala); Cooper (Rachael Harris), an attorney who values her work over the idea of raising a family; and Danny (Michael Weaver), a womanizer.

It appears that all the stereotypes needed for a basic sitcom are in place, now it's just a matter of seeing if everything can come together to create something that's worth watching. I must say, though, that the premise alone doesn't sound all that exciting.

about time this one starts, i'm in the episode about her sister visiting. I'm selling flowers, in the farmers market scene and my actual company is in the background, with one of my workers manning the booth.

Jennifer was fantastic in "Kissing Jessica Stein." Glad to see her hit it big (if the shows stays on the air).

After living through a very similar situation, I'm not sure I want to watch a sitcom about it!
