In the new family-friendly show, Return of the Mac, Joey McIntyre plays an actor wanting to be taken seriously. His own beautiful family joins him as actors on the show as they navigate life when Joey is offered a job as a TV talk show host on a fledgling cable network, the Comfy Channel.
At a recent promotional event in King of Prussia, PA, I had the opportunity to meet and interview Joey. See a brief Q&A below:
Q: What do you want the audience to take away from this show?
A: I hope people relate no matter what they go through. It’s really about having to say “yes” when you really want to say “no” because hopefully it will lead to bigger and better things – you know, the ups and downs of any career and dealing with crazy people and trying to make the most of it.
Q: What excites you about this show?
A: I think it’s funny. I feel like I have a certain sensibility and humor and I was able to put together a team of good writers and actors.
Q: Do you help write the scripts?
A: I created the show, so yes. My real family is sprinkled in there and I kinda went for it. You have to ask for help and hopefully people will show up and they did for me. It’s something I have never done so I am proud of the final outcome. It is a good challenge.
