Raising Hope

Jimmy Chance, a 23-year-old man who skims pools for a living, has a chance romantic encounter with Lucy, a wanted felon. When he visits Lucy in prison months later, Jimmy discovers that she gave birth to a baby he must now raise -- with his family's help. Jimmy's family includes his parents, who have no interest in helping to raise their grandchild, and his grandmother, Maw Maw, who can barely care for herself ... let alone a baby. Greg Garcia (``My Name Is Earl'') created and executive produces the family comedy.
