Instant Mom follows young party girl Stephanie (Mowry-Hardrict) who trades in cosmos for carpools when she marries an older man, Charlie ( Michael Boatman, Spin City), with 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 ( Moesha) stars as Stephanie's mother Maggie and rounding out the cast are the three kids played by Sydney Park, Tylen Williams and Damarr Calhoun.  The series is created by Warren Bell ( Victorious, According to Jim) and Jessica Butler ( In Plain Sight) and executive-produced by Howard Gould ( The Jeff Foxworthy Show, Cybil) and Aaron Kaplan ( Wendell & Vinnie, The Neighbors). 

" Instant Mom is the perfect addition to our NickMom nighttime comedy block designed to let moms unwind from the day and laugh at the often hilarious experiences of parenthood," said O'Keefe.  "This show has a fantastic cast and at the center is Tia bringing all her warmth and talent to this funny and relatable character."
