Vuguru And BermanBraun Team Up With AOL to Launch Family Comedy "Greetings From Home"


From the producers behind the hit TV-shows "Alphas" and "Junk Yard Gypsies", comes the brand new family comedy, "Greetings from Home" - a humorous take on the chaos that ensues when a military dad has to raise two unruly teens while mom is deployed overseas. Developed with hit production company BermanBraun,"Greetings from Home" comes hot on the heels of AOL and Vuguru's recent collaborations: the runaway hit comedy "Little Women Big Cars" and the romantic comedy "Fetching", both part of AOL's commitment to provide high quality content on the Web.

When career soldier Pete Griffin loses a leg in combat oversees, he is sent home to a desk job. Simultaneously, Pete's wife Patty, an Army nurse, gets deployed to Afghanistan, leaving him to raise daredevil son Chris and moody adolescent daughter Becky alone. Fortunately, helping Pete survive single fatherhood are his slacker brother-in-law, loopy grandmother Nana and the neighborhood army wives: an OCD-afflicted Sue; Emma, a sassy pregnant intellectual; Roberta, an airhead trying to lose weight before her husband returns; and Missy Wentworth, an overly provocative teenage bride. Pete loves his family, but he soon realizes that raising teenage kids is a combat situation in itself!
