Raising Hope is the critically acclaimed comedy created by Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia and executive-produced by Mike Mariano ("My Name is Earl," "Yes, Dear") that follows the continuing comic adventures of the Chance family as they raise an adorable girl named HOPE (guest stars Baylie and Rylie Cregut).
Following JIMMY's (Lucas Neff) marriage to longtime crush SABRINA (Shannon Woodward), the young couple moved into their own home this past season. But they found that they still need Jimmy's parents, VIRGINIA (Emmy Award winner Martha Plimpton) and BURT (Garret Dillahunt), to help them raise Jimmy's daughter, Hope. Having been teen parents themselves, Virginia and Burt see Hope as their second chance to get Parenthood right, after all the mistakes they made with Jimmy.
They continue to live with Virginia's erratic grandmother, MAW MAW (Emmy Award winner Cloris Leachman), whose eccentricities keep everyone on their toes, as she has a tendency to lose her clothing and, in her mind, it just might be World War II. To make ends meet, Jimmy and Sabrina still work together at Howdy's Supermarket, under the supervision of their goofy manager, BARNEY (Gregg Binkley).
