Premise
In the Heck family, middle-age, middle-class, middle-America mom Frankie Heck uses a sense of humor to try to steer her family through life's ups and downs as she tackles dental assisting school. Her unflappable husband, Mike, is a manager at the local quarry. Oldest son Axl is an obstinate teen who eats the family out of house and home; daughter Sue is an inept adolescent who cannot seem to find her niche -- despite much enthusiasm in her attempts -- and youngest son Brick is an odd child whose best friend is his backpack.
