About the Show

Middle-aged, middle class and living in the middle of the country, Frankie Heck, a 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. Her work life’s no easier, as she struggles day to day as the least successful saleswoman in Orson, Indiana’s only surviving car dealer.  But an unexpected turn of events at work could force her to reevaluate her career.  Frankie’s unflappable husband, Mike, is a manager at the local quarry and her sardonic partner in the daily grind that is raising their average—yes, most definitely average—family.

Between juggling shifts and picking up fast food dinners eaten in front of the TV, Frankie and Mike raise their kids with love and solid Midwestern practicality. Axl (McDermott), the oldest, is a high school senior and jock slacker who eats the family out of house and home and walks around in his underwear. But his lazy days may be numbered when Mike makes it his mission to ensure that Axl will somehow earn a sports scholarship and be able to attend college next year.  Then there's Sue (Sher), their extraordinarily ordinary teen daughter who fails at just about everything she tries with great gusto.  Now a sophomore in high school, she continues to  navigate the raging waters of school life, and, to Frankie and Mike’s horror, will even attempt to get her driver’s license. Finally, there’s Brick (Shaffer), their quirky fifth-grader, who reads constantly, whispers to himself and unapologetically marches to the beat of his own drummer.

Through all the madness, however, shines a loving family—and together, the Hecks are putting The Middle on the map.
