"Working the Engels" is a single-camera comedy series on NBC that marks the first time a U.S. and Canadian broadcaster have collaborated to produce a half-hour network comedy.

The series centers on a family who must band together to keep their heads above water when their father and breadwinner passes away, leaving them a mountain of debt. The Engels must all go to work running Dad's storefront law firm, with one minor problem — daughter Jenna is the only one who is qualified to practice law.

"SCTV"

legend and two-time Emmy Award winner Andrea Martin will play Ceil, the overly confident family matriarch. The cast also includes Kacey Rohl ("Hannibal"), Azura Skye ("American Horror Story") and Benjamin Arthur ("Less Than Kind").

"Working the Engels" is produced by Halfire-CORE Entertainment in partnership with Shaw Media. The series is created and written by Katie Ford and Jane Ford, who also both serve as executive producers along with Howard Busgang, Tom Nursall and Noreen Halpern.
