THE MIDDLE premieres Wednesday, September 26 from 8-9 PM on ABC. Two-time Emmy winner Patricia Heaton stars in this warm and witty single-camera comedy about raising a family and lowering your expectations.

Middle-aged, middle class and living in the middle of the country in Orson, Indiana, Frankie Heck is a harried wife and working mother of three who uses her wry wit and sense of humor in an attempt to get her family through each day intact. Her work life's no easier as she struggles day to day as the least successful sales woman at the town's only surviving car dealer. But an unexpected turn of events at work could force her to re-evaluate her career.

Frankie's unflappable husband, Mike, is manager at the local quarry and her sardonic partner in the daily grind that is raising their average - yes, most definitely average - family.

Between juggling shifts and picking up fast food dinners eaten in front of the TV, Frankie and Mike raise their kids with love, humor and solid Midwestern practicality. Axl, the oldest, is a high school senior and jock slacker who eats them out of house and home and walks around the house in his boxers. But his lazy days may be numbered when Mike makes it his mission to ensure that Axl will somehow earn a sports scholarship and be able to attend college next year. Then there's Sue, their extraordinarily ordinary daughter, who fails at just about everything she tries with great gusto. Now a sophomore in high school, she continues to navigate the raging waters of school life and, to Frankie and Mike's horror, will even attempt to get her driver's license. And last is Brick, their quirky fifth-grader, who reads constantly, whispers to himself and unapologetically marches to the beat of his own drummer.

But through all the madness shines a loving family, and together, the Hecks are putting THE MIDDLE on the map.

"The Middle" stars Patricia Heaton as Frankie, Neil Flynn as Mike, Charlie McDermott as Axl, Eden Sher as Sue and Atticus Shaffer as Brick.

"The Middle" was created and is executive-produced by Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline. The series is from Warner Bros. Television.
