“One big family. Four short stories. Every week.”

Tonight, “Life In Pieces” premieres on CBS at 8:30/7:30c. “Life In Pieces” is a family comedy told through the seperate stories of different family members. Colin Hanks, Zoe Lister Jones, Thomas Sadoski, Angelique Cabral, Dianne Wiest, Betsy Brandt, Dan Bakkedahl are starring.

Colin Hanks visited “CBS This Morning” as well as “Late Night Seth Meyers” on Friday, September 18th.

He revealed that the writers of “Life In Pieces” included a story from his own life. “We were sort of talking with the director and the writer and I just told this story about when my wife and I took our first born home from the hospital.”

He also explained that he wanted to try something different. “The way it was written, it was so funny. The structure of the show is a little bit different with these four short stories every week telling this family’s greater story. It was really engaging and really funny and the chance to laugh at work. I’ll never turn that down.”
