"Mr. Sunshine" Season 2 is awaiting renewal from ABC for the 2011-2012 season.

"Mr. Sunshine" (ABC TV show) is a comedy that proves even when you're out of your element, you can still be in the right arena.

Everyone's life feels like a three-ring circus. For Ben, the middle-aged manager of a mid-level sports arena, some days that's exactly what it is. In this outrageous workplace comedy, Ben has to juggle a wide variety of sports and entertainment acts, while handling his erratic boss and apathetic staff. The Sunshine Center has seen better days, but then again, so has Ben. Ben's unpredictable boss Crystal is the head of this little dysfunctional workplace family. Ben's not-quite girlfriend Alice is the heart and mouth of the place. She handles PR. His nemesis at The Sunshine Center is Alonzo, who competes with him for Alice's affection. Alonzo is smooth, attentive, and committed basically everything that Ben isn't—at least not yet. Luckily, Ben also has an unlikely confidant and ally in Crystal's unmotivated son Roman. Roman's not much good at work, but he's a heck of a listener. Each week, despite the unusual demands of the ever-changing touring events, Ben tries to keep it all together. Crystal's flightiness may drive him crazy and his slacker crew might make him nuts, but Ben is determined to make the Sunshine Center the very best second rate, two-bit stadium in the world.

The "Mr. Sunshine" cast includes Matthew Perry as Ben, Allison Janney as Crystal Cohen, Andrea Anders as Alice, James Lesure as Alonzo, Nate Torrence as Roman Cohen, and Portia Doubleday as Heather.

"Mr. Sunshine" Season 2 is produced by FanFare Productions and Shoe Money Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. "Mr. Sunshine" is co-written by Matthew Perry along with Alex Barnow and Marc Firek and executive produced by Jamie Tarses ("My Boys") and Thomas Schlamme ("The West Wing"), who also directs this wild new workplace comedy. Jon Amodeo produces.
