Behind the Scenes of ABC's Home Economics


Join the team bringing ABC’s hit show “Home Economics” to life as they unpack a family full of complexities and represent a true portrait of the modern American family. Executive Producer Topher Grace (“That 70s Show,” Spider-Man 3, In Good Company) also stars as Tom, the eldest of 3 grown-up siblings who find themselves living at vastly different levels of financial security from one another. We’ll look into the writers room and all the way through post production to showcase the intentional world being built to highlight how far the family sitcom has come and what it can do for us today.
