Hollywood, The Real O'Neals is the sixth renewed comedy
series at ABC. Also coming back next season are The Middle,
The Goldbergs, Modern Family, Black-ish and

The Real O'Neals revolves around
a picture-perfect family that is turned upside down when 16-year-old
Kenny O'Neal (played by Noah Galvin) comes out gay. The show also
stars Martha Plimpton as Eileen, Jay R. Ferguson as Pat, Matt Shively
as Jimmy, Bebe Wood as Shannon and Mary Hollis Inboden as Jodi.
The single-camera family comedy is
loosely based on the life of gay activist and author Dan Savage,
whose participation in the project led conservative groups to launch
an unsuccessful campaign to convince ABC to drop the show.
