Frankie Heck (Heaton) is a superhero. Well, no, not an actual superhero – but sometimes it seems as though getting her kids out the door for school every morning is a superheroic act. Middle aged, middle class and living in the middle of the country, this harried wife and working mother of three uses her wry wit and sense of humor to try to get her family through each day intact. In addition to Heaton, the series also stars Neil Flynn (“Scrubs”), Charlie McDermott (“Frozen River”), Eden Sher (“Weeds,” “The O.C.”), Atticus Shaffer (“Hancock”) and Chris Kattan (“Saturday Night Live”). Executive produced and written by DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler (both of “How I Met Your Mother”), “The Middle” is produced by Warner Bros. Television.
