Kaitlin Olson is making her way to broadcast TV early next year—on the New Year, as a matter of fact—with the premiere of The Mick. The raunchy Fox comedy stars the It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia regular as Mickey, the wayward aunt of some snooty rich kids in Connecticut. Considering their mom (Mickey’s sister) is led away in handcuffs at the outset of the shenanigans, they aren’t really in a position to look down on her. But they do exactly that, not that Mickey cares. In this red band trailer, which The A.V. Club is exclusively premiering, she shares tough love and bad advice. It’s not enough to keep blood off of anyone’s hands or clothes, but she does try.

Naturally, the wee, rich ones—who are played by Sofia Black-D’Elia, Thomas Barbusca, Jack Stanton—rebel against their degenerate relative at first. But when your guardian encourages you to express yourself by wearing and saying whatever you want, as well as hurling stilettos at intruders, it’s kind of hard to resist.


The Mick will have a special premiere January 1 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox, followed by an encore on at 8 p.m. PT that same night. The second all-new episode will air in The Mick’s regular time slot Tuesday, January 3 at 8:31 p.m. ET.
