Nick Cristano: He is an Italian American bachelor who routinely visits his four grandparents every Sunday for dinners which are governed by the three "Fs" “ family, faith and food. He is offered a promotion that will separate him from them.

Fran Gianelli: Nicks maternal grandfather, eighty years old

Aida Gianelli: Nicks maternal grandmother, in her seventies

Nunzio Cristano: Nicks paternal grandfather, in his seventies

Emma Cristano: Nicks paternal grandmother, in her seventies

Caitlyn OHare: Attractive and Charming, in her late twenties. She is Irish and is being set up as a love interest for Nick.

Both sets of grandparents are Italian immigrants. Their purpose in life was to create a loving home for their families and to give their children and grandchildren all the opportunities they did not have. The grandfathers expressed their love by working hard to support their families, the grandmothers, through food. They are motivated to keep Nick in the area as he is their only relative living in the area.

Age adaptations will be considered based upon turn out of talent during auditions.

The entire show takes place in the Gianelli home in Hoboken, New Jersey.
