Trivia

  • Gianna LePera was cast as Hillary and worked on the pilot, but upon ABC ordering this to series was replaced by Bailee Madison.
  • Malin Akerman (Kate) was pregnant in the pilot of the show.
  • As of the September 2013 premiere date, Bradley Whitford was 53 years old, Marcia Gay Harden was 54, Michaela Watkins was 41 (13 years younger than wife #1), and Malin Akerman was 35 (19 years younger than wife #1). A May-December romance is generally considered to involve an age gap of at least 11 years, so the second and third wife would fall into that category.
