The Millers stars Arnett as a recently divorced man whose father (Beau Bridges) also decides to get divorced, causing Arnett's mother (Margo Martindale) to move in with her reluctant son. Actor J.B. Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Real Husbands of Hollywood) also stars as Arnett's best friend.
"You get the sense that these are real people, " says Arnett. "These are real situations that we've all been in."
It's that accessibility of the show that the cast hopes will resonate with viewers this fall.
"Dysfunction is not funny," says J.B. Smoove, adding, "what's funny is working through dysfunction."
