'Family Tools': Exclusive Video from New Sitcom

With ABC's Family Tools premiering later this week, ETonline has landed an exclusive new video from the new sitcom.
The series follows a man named "Jack Shea" (Kyle Bornheimer), who has struggled his entire adult life to find a suitable career.
After flunking out of seminary school and proving that he isn't wired for anything involving firearms after shooting himself in the police academy and shooting someone else in the army, Jack is thrust into another line of work that might not be his strong suit.
His father, played by J.K. Simmons, has a heart attack that forces him to retire from his handyman business and appoints Jack in charge as the new "Mr. Jiffy-Fix."
As you can see in the promo, Jack isn't much of handyman and his clumsiness doesn't aid the situation in the slightest. On top of that, he has to deal with his father constantly micromanaging to make sure the business survives the transition.
Jack also doesn't receive much assistance from his helper, "Darren" (Edi Gathegi), or Darren's flirty sister, "Stitch" (Danielle Nicolet), who is more concerned about how she looks on camera than aiding Jack as they film an advertisement.
Watch the exclusive fun video above, which was created as part of ABC’s new online series ABC.comedy.
Check out Family Tools when it premieres on Wednesday at 8:30 on ABC between new episodes of The Middle and Modern Family.
