Last week, NickMom announced the fall premiere of Instant Mom, its first original scripted comedy series, starring and produced by Tia Mowry-Hardrict

A week later, today, Mowry-Hardrict and Instant Mom executive producer Aaron Kaplan, have sold an untitled Drill Sergeant comedy project to the NickMom, said to be loosely based on Mowry-Hardrict’s childhood. 

The series will revolve around a 12-year-old girl who lives on an Army base with her drill sergeant mother. 

Dan Kopelman (Rules Of Engagement) will pen the script and executive produce with Mowry-Hardrict and Kaplan through his Kapital Entertainment.

Meanwhile, the aforementioned Instant Mom, which debuts this fall, will be a half-hour series in which Mowry-Hardrict stars as Stephanie, a party girl who trades in her party lifestyle when she marries Charlie (Michael Boatman), who already has three kids. Stephanie slowly grows into her role as a full-time step-mom while struggling to maintain some sense of her fun-loving, slightly irresponsible life. 

Sheryl Lee Ralph co-stars as Stephanie's mother Maggie, and rounding out the cast are Charlie's three kids played by Sydney ParkTylen Williams and Damarr Calhoun.

The series is picked up for 13 episodes and will premiere in the primetime NickMom block on the Nick Jr. channel, with encore episodes airing on Nick at Nite.
