Created by Kari Lizer, “Call Your Mother,” ABC’s new sitcom from “The New Adventures of Old Christine”, is an American television multi-camera sitcom that premiered on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, at 9:30 P.M ET.
As empty-nester mom Jean reinserts herself into her family’s lives, her kids realize how much they need her.
Both of her adult kids fled the coop some years ago, leaving the retired Iowa widow free to do whatever she wants in her empty nest. But Jean is the kind of mom who gave so much of herself to her children that she no longer knows who she is without them. So she gives herself a new start of sorts — by spontaneously moving to Los Angeles, where she can keep an unwanted eye on her daughter Jackie (Rachel Sennott) and son Freddie (Joey Bragg).
The show is available for streaming on ABC.com, app, Prime Video and, Hulu.
