I grew up watching and loving Sister, Sister staring twins Tia and Tamera Mowry and have I’ve also become a big fan of their STYLE network series Tia & Tamera.  I think both Tia and Tamera have always been such positive, uplifting role models for young girls and now women and I’m so happy for their continues success.  If you do happen to watch Tia & Tamera then you may remember Tia taking a meeting with the people at Nickelodeon last season for a possible role on an upcoming series, well I’m so happy that Tia Mowry-Hardrict will be staring in and producing Instant Mom, this fall for NickMom…I can’t wait to watch!

You can check out all of the details about the show below.

NickMom this fall will premiere Instant Mom, its first original scripted comedy series, starring and produced by Tia Mowry-Hardrict (Tia & Tamera).  The half-hour, multi-camera series features Mowry-Hardrict as Stephanie, a party girl who trades in Cosmos for carpools when she marries Charlie (Michael Boatman, Spin City), who already has three kids.  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.

“First-generation Nickelodeon viewers are now moms and will soon be treated to NickMom’s first original comedy with someone they grew up watching and loving,” said Bronwen O’Keefe, Senior Vice President, NickMom.  “We’re excited our audience will get to see Tia in her first starring role as a mom, joined by the very talented Michael Boatman and Sheryl Lee Ralph.”
In Instant Mom, Stephanie (Mowry-Hardrict) 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 (Moesha) stars as Stephanie’s mother Maggie, and rounding out the cast are Charlie’s three kids played by Sydney Park (CSI: NY), Tylen Williams and Damarr Calhoun. 

Sophisticated, savvy and an all-around sweetheart, actress Tia Mowry-Hardrict has been in the public eye for over 17 years, gaining initial fame starring opposite her twin sister Tamera Mowry-Housley in the hit comedy Sister Sister from Paramount Television. On Sister Sister’s successful six-year run, Tia won two NAACP Image Awards and three Kids’ Choice Awards for Favorite Television Actress. After graduating from Pepperdine University, she made appearances in various projects, including starring with her sister once again in The Disney Channel’s original movie Twitches in 2005 and again in Twitches Too, two years later. In 2006, Tia landed the role of “Melanie Barnett,” medical student turned wife of pro-football player on The Game, which landed her two more NAACP Image Award nominations.

Currently, Tia is starring in with her sister Tamera and executive producing the STYLE network series Tia & Tamera, which set a record as the most watched series launch in the network's history. Season three returns summer 2013. Tia recently released her debut book Oh Baby!: Pregnancy Tales and Advice from One Hot Mama to Another, and filmed and released a fitness DVD.  With her sister, she developed and launched their first product line entitled need and their first product called MILKY! hit Destination Maternity stores nationwide this spring.  Tia is also set to appear in the upcoming Fox Searchlight Pictures film Baggage Claim, to be released in September.

Instant Mom is executive-produced by Howard Gould and Aaron Kaplan.  Gould had served as executive producer and head writer of Cybill when it won the Golden Globe for Best Comedy Series.  He also wrote and directed the feature film The Six Wives of Henry Lefay, starring Tim Allen, Elisha Cuthbert, Andie MacDowell and Jenna Elfman.  Gould’s other credits include FM, Home Improvement, The Jeff Foxworthy Show, Mr. 3000 and Shrek the Third.
