NickMom this fall will premiere Instant Mom, its first original scripted comedy series, starring and produced by Tia Mowry-Hardrict (Tia & Tamera).
The half-hour, multi-camera series features Mowry-Hardrict as Stephanie, a party girl who trades in Cosmos for carpools when she marries Charlie (Michael Boatman, Spin City), who already has three kids.
The series is picked up for 13 episodes and will premiere in the primetime NickMom block on the Nick Jr. channel, with encore episodes airing on Nick at Nite.[ Also Read: Young Moms Spend More Time on Social Networks ]

“We’re excited our audience will get to see Tia in her first starring role as a mom, joined by the very talented Michael Boatman and Sheryl Lee Ralph.”[ Also Read: Chriss Knight to Host Web Series on Wild Animals ]
In Instant Mom, Stephanie (Mowry-Hardrict) slowly grows into her role as a full-time stepmom while struggling to maintain some sense of her fun-loving, slightly irresponsible life.
Sheryl Lee Ralph (Moesha) stars as Stephanie’s mother Maggie, and rounding out the cast are Charlie’s three kids played by Sydney Park (CSI: NY), Tylen Williams and Damarr Calhoun.
