Jason Katims’ drama “Not Just Me” has been picked up for a full season. The new FOX show is based on an Australian television drama series called “Sisters”. In this US version, Brittany Snow stars as Julia Bechley, who grew up as an only child. She discovers that her dad fathered many other children as a sperm donor.
Jason Katims, Jeni Mulein, Imogen Banks and Sharon Levy serve as executive producers.
“Not Just Me” is going to air Wednesdays at 9 PM ET/PT this fall.
Executive producer Jason Katims (“Friday NightLights,” “Parenthood”) and writer Annie Weisman (“About A Boy,” “Desperate Housewives”) bring you NOT JUST ME (wt), the story of an unusual family formed through extreme odds, exploring such hot-button issues as identity, human connection and what it truly means to be a family. An only child (Brittany Snow, the “Pitch Perfect” franchise, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) finds her life turned upside down when her father (Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton, “American Crime,” “Ordinary People”) reveals that, over the course of his prize-winning career as a pioneering fertility doctor, he used his own sperm to conceive upwards of a hundred children, including two new sisters (Megalyn Echikunwoke, “The Following,” “90210,” and Emily Osment, “The Kominsky Method,” “Young & Hungry”). As these three young women slowly embrace their new reality, they will attempt to form an untraditional bond as sisters, even as they must welcome a tidal wave of new siblings into their rapidly expanding family. The series also stars Mustafa Elzein (“Sequestered”), Mo McRae (“Big Little Lies,” “Pitch”) and Victoria Cartagena (“Manifest”).
