About this submission

The Hancocks was inspired by one outrageous piece of trivia about my father's family: my grandfather was polygamous throughout his whole adult life. His unwitting wives only found out about it all upon his death, which from his perspective, was a win.

Written as a single-camera sitcom, this show tells the story of three culturally different women brought together by the fact that they were all married to the same (suddenly deceased) con artist. When Mr. Hancock's estate reveals that there is little left apart from a decadent mansion in Virginia, Jen, Lisa, Katja, and their respective children must move in together and try to make it all work as a family.

They are, or at least will have to be, the Hancocks.

This is a first draft, written for the purpose of this challenge.
