FOX has announced the season premiere of OLIVER BEENE on Sunday, Feb. 8 (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT).
Viewers will get a chance to see a sneak preview of OLIVER BEENE following America's introduction to the newest group of AMERICAN IDOL semi-finalists on Wednesday, Feb. 4 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).
OLIVER BEENE is a timeless half-hour comedy series that revolves around 11-year-old Oliver Beene and his family during the Kennedy-era '60s.
The series stars Grant Rosenmeyer as Oliver Beene. His eccentric family is headed by Grant Shaud as Oliver's high-strung dentist-father, Jerry; Wendy Makkena plays his Jackie Kennedy-idolizing mother, Charlotte; and Andrew Lawrence portrays his sports-fanatic brother, Ted. Rounding out the cast is Taylor Emerson, who portrays Oliver's fabulous friend Michael, and Daveigh Chase, who plays Joyce, Oliver's desk-mate since the third grade.
Set against the backdrop of Rego Park, Queens, OLIVER BEENE uses a unique combination of flashbacks and flash-forwards to vividly re-create the Kennedy-era '60s. Narrated by a wickedly wry adult Oliver (David Cross), this timeless series depicts the often hilarious trials and sometimes outrageous tribulations of a kid growing up.
OLIVER BEENE is a DreamWorks Television production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Howard Gewirtz and Steven Levitan are executive producers.
