You can't pick your family,
but you might be able to buy them off.
EPISODE ONE (3/7/15)
SUMMARY: Nerdy and socially awkward Myron wants to
take CJ to prom, but she's not interested. And she's not
in a "dating place" anyway due to trouble with her family.
Her father, Roy - coach of the baseball team on which Myron is
the "fifth string StopShort" (according to Myron) - is a crude
jerk, and he talks Myron's father, David, into bribing him to
allow Myron to play. When Myron doesn't get it, and thinks
he's about to get a chance to prove his manhood, CJ turns on him
and tells him that neither he nor his father have a spine.
As Myron slinks off, CJ - with Myron, who was not quite gone
yet, secretly watching - is approached by Crig, a man who claims
to be her long-lost and wealthy grandfather. He's willing
to leave his $500 million fortune to her to help save her
father's soul - but to earn it, she has to somehow convince her
father to reform himself without telling him about the
inheritance; he must reform himself solely on his love for her.
As she wonders aloud if she'll have to face this challenge
alone, Myron leaps out of the shadows and pledges his help.
