"Suburgatory" is about a teen, Tessa Altman (Jane Levy) and her single Dad, George (Jeremy Sisto) who move to the suburbs from Manhattan because Dad thinks there's too much trouble for Tessa to get into in the big city.
Next thing you know, as Tessa narrates, Dad has "bubble wrapped my life" and moved them to the land of overly friendly neighbors and oversized SUVs.
This doesn't sit well with Tessa, and the show revolves around her trying to adjust to her unfamiliar new home and her hostile new classmates.
"Suburgatory" has the mild sensibility of something you'd find on the Disney Channel and it may actually do well with the teen and tween set, but when it comes to viewing for adults, more laughs may be required.
Jane Levy is adorably likeable as Tessa and Jeremy Sisto is surprisingly sweet as her Dad. I say surprising 'cause the last time I saw him, he was the off the chain, nut job, Billy Chenowith on "Six Feet Under."
"Suburgatory" premieres Wednesday, September 8:30/7:30c on ABC but if you'd like a preview visit www.abc.com/suburgatoryscreening and enter code: DAGcrc5K6 to try out the show for yourself.
