Ther series is slated to premiere June 15.

Also premiering is ‘The Exes,’ starring Donald Faison, Wayne Knight and David Alan Basche as three divorced men who live together in an apartment across the hall from their divorce attorney Holly (Kristen Johnston), who is also their landlord. The series is scheduled to launch next winter.
