This week on "Life with Bonnie"
DUE TO A LATE CANCELLATION ON "MORNING CHICAGO," JOHNNY VOLCANO (DAVID DUCHOVNY) - THE STATION'S WEATHERMAN - BECOMES BONNIE'S FILL-IN GUEST, ON ABC'S "LIFE WITH BONNIE"
About the Show:
"Life With Bonnie," stars Bonnie Hunt ("Jerry Maguire," "Return to Me"), Mark Derwin (ABC's "One Life to Live") and David Alan Grier ("DAG," "In Living Color"). The series, which premiered September 17, will air on TUESDAYS (9:00-9:30 p.m., ET) this fall on ABC.
Bonnie Hunt brings the same accessibility she brought to the films "Jerry Maguire," "Jumanji" and "Return to Me" to this new family series in which she portrays Bonnie Molloy, a woman who juggles the roles of wife, mother and host of the local morning talk show "Morning Chicago."
In the series, Hunt's improvisational skills shine during unscripted interviews with real-life guests (non-actors) of "Morning Chicago." In the pilot episode, Bonnie traded quips and tips with two authentic Italian chefs during an offbeat-cooking segment. The unscripted segments of the talk show, along with the talented cast of regulars, make for a truly unique comedy mix.
The "Life with Bonnie" cast includes the gifted and funny David Alan Grier as David Bellows, the producer who struggles with the daily challenge of... Bonnie. He's aided by the makeup and cue card artists, played by Holly Wortell and Chris Barnes, veterans of the famed Second City improvisational group. Anthony Russell portrays Tony Russo, Bonnie's sidekick piano player who comes straight to her show from his Vegas lounge act.
At home, Gloria (Marianne Muellerleile) is a houseguest more than a housekeeper. Bonnie's husband, John (Mark Derwin), is a hard-working family practice doctor who does his best to survive life with Bonnie. Together they are raising three young children, Samantha (Samantha Browne-Walters), Charlie (Charlie Stewart) and infant Connor, as Bonnie creatively balances family commitment and career obligations with sincerity and humor.
"Life with Bonnie" stars Bonnie Hunt as Bonnie Molloy, Mark Derwin as Dr. John Molloy, Samantha Browne-Walters as Samantha Molloy, Marianne Muellerleile as Gloria, Charlie Stewart as Charlie Molloy, Holly Wortell as Holly, Chris Barnes as Marv, Anthony Russell as Tony Russo and David Alan Grier as David Bellows.
