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

The half-hour series features Mowry-Hardrict as Stephanie, a party girl who trades in Cosmos for carpools when she marries Charlie (Michael Boatman), who already has three kids. Stephanie slowly grows into her role as a full-time stepmom 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 Park, Tylen 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.

Instant Mom is executive-produced by Howard Gould and Aaron Kaplan.

Secondly, NickMom also announced several new programming initiatives during its presentation at the TCA Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills this morning. NickMom Senior Vice President, Bronwen O'Keefe, revealed development deals for four new series with Whoopi Goldberg among the producers.

In development, via her WHOOP Inc shingle, the Goldberg-exec-produced Lounge (working title), is described as a talk/variety series that features raw, honest and funny conversations between real, everyday moms who are given an opportunity to be pampered, celebrated and have their dreams come true.

NickMom is a primetime TV block for moms that airs daily from 10 pm - 2 am (ET/PT) on the Nick Jr. channel. The block features a mix of original long and short-form programming, including talk shows, stand-up and sketch comedy, scripted comedy, docu-series and more.
