While he's probably best known for his role as Dennis “Cutty” Wise on HBO’s The Wire, Chad Coleman has almost two decades of professional acting experience under his belt. He’ll add another line to his resume this November, when he stars in FOX TV’s new family sitcom I Hate My Teenage Daughter.

Also starring in I Hate My Teenage Daughter will be Australian actress Aisha Dee (The Saddle Club, Dead Gorgeous), in what appears to be her first role in an American series.

The show has a simple enough premise:

I Hate My Teenage Daughter stars Jaime Pressly and Katie Finneran as two moms who are worried that their daughters (Kristi Lauren and Aisha Dee) are becoming mean girls.

Atlthough I can't confirm it, from what I gather, Coleman will play the role of Gary, the father of Dee’s character, McKenzie.

I Hate My Teenage Daughter is scheduled to premiere Nov. 30, and will follow another new FOX show, the Simon Cowell produced X Factor, on Wednesday nights.

    Have known Aisha since her Saddle Club days; she is a damn good and pretty actress. If the writers can write their 'thing', then this show will be a hit!

    Sounds like a bunch of suck.

    I stopped watching sitcoms decades ago.

    the two daughters were being so mean to the mothers while the mothers were spineless carpets putting up with very rude behavior.
    I don’t know/have never known ANY black (other ethnicity) teenage girl speaking/behaving that way to their mothers ON A REGULAR.

    It happens it just depends on the area that they live in.

    I've seen it more in the white community than black.
    I've also seen it more from Hispanic boys being like that towards thier nonenglish speaking mother. If Mom has been Americanized-they don't do.
    Black boys-tend to do it more towards men and mom supports it.

    It'll be cancelled quicker that Affion's show - hopefully.

    @Cherish & Emmanuel-Guess you won't like DON'T TRUST THE BITCH IN APT 23? :-(

    ABC changed the name to APARTMENT 23.

    And this will be cancelled quick. The pilot is terrible....

    Saw a brief clip where the two daughters were being so mean to the mothers while the mothers were spineless carpets putting up with very rude behavior. It left a very bad taste in my mouth. It was so over-the-top pathetic.

    I don't know/have never known ANY black (other ethnicity) teenage girl speaking/behaving that way to their mothers ON A REGULAR.

    The mothers in the clip were more interested in being a cool friend than a parent.

    BOLD PREDICTION: This show will not be tops in black households. It's unrelatable and irritating.

    I'm extremely happy for him. About time they are showing this brother some love. I loved his work and character on The Wire. I think he was one of the most honorable black male roles on that show. But I won't be watching or supporting this show due to the nature and white washing that is obvious. I can only imagine what its gonna be like every week but congrats to him though!

    Yeh...The poster is interesting too. The line up and stance of the non-white characters.

  • Emmanuel | September 13, 2011 2:20 AMReply

    @Cherish

    I agree with you. But that's the culture we live in today. Negativity sells, unfortunately.

    What a horrible title. Couldn't they come up with a title less mean-spirited?
