US adaptation of The Moodys gets renewal

Based on the 2014 ABC series and co-produced by CBS Television Studios and FOX Entertainment, it screened as a a three night Christmas event. Starring Denis Leary and Elizabeth Perkins, it premiered to 2.84 million viewers on broadcast.
Season 2 will continue to follow the Moody family through their everyday lives. An episode count for season two has yet to be determined.
“With The Moodys, we set out to brand the holidays in the only way Fox can — bold and unconventional. What we ended up with was a special show — and a family — everyone at the network fell in love with,” said FOX Entertainment president Michael Thorn. “[US creators] Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg and Tad Quill perfectly captured the hysterics of Christmas, with sharp banter and real moments of family togetherness brought to life by Denis Leary, Elizabeth Perkins and the rest of the incredible cast. [Executive producers] Eric and Kim Tannenbaum and CBS Television Studios have been great partners on this series; and, simply put, we’re looking forward to The Moodys’ future adventures.”
Original Jungle producers Trent O’Donnell, Phil Lloyd and Jason Burrows are also executive producers.
