The new family comedy Life In Pieces is about the ups and downs of the Short family. James Brolin is the patriarch; Dianne Wiest is the matriarch. They’re both lovable characters, as are their imperfect adult children including Matt, who still lives with them. When Matt goes out on a date with his co-worker Colleen, he takes her “home.” She’s impressed with the house and thinks at first he’s a “trust fund baby” until they’re greeted by Matt’s parents sitting on the couch.
Matt is portrayed by the charming Thomas Sadoski. Colleen is portrayed by Angelique Cabral. She’s appeared on several TV shows including Melrose Place, Two and a Half Men, The Mentalist and Devious Maids, but she’s best known for her roles in the films The Perfect Family with Kathleen Turner and Emily Deschanel and Friends with Benefits with Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis. Life in Pieces will premiere on Monday, September 21 at 8:30pm. In November, the show will move to Thursdays (8:30, CBS).
