Two-time Emmy(R) winner Patricia Heaton stars in this warm and witty single-camera comedy about raising a family and lowering your expectations. Middle-aged, middle class and living in the middle of the country in Orson, Indiana, Frankie Heck is a harried wife and mother of three who uses her wry wit and sense of humor to get her family through each day intact. Frankie works as a dental assistant, and her unflappable husband, Mike, is a manager at the local quarry and her sardonic partner in the daily grind that is raising their average - yes, most definitely average - family. The Middle stars Patricia Heaton as Frankie, Neil Flynn as Mike, Charlie McDermott as Axl, Eden Sher as Sue and Atticus Shaffer as Brick. The Middle was created and is executive produced by Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline. The series is from Warner Bros. Television.
