Who knew divorce could be so funny?

Jenna Elfman's latest television role has landed her opposite "Spider-Man's" J.K. Simmons as Joyce Fisher, a mother of two who is in the midst of divorcing her blind husband (Simmons). Narrated by Jason Bateman and co-starring Eli Baker and Ava Deluca-Verley, "Growing Up Fisher" is based on creator D.J. Nash's experience growing up with his blind father. The family also has an adorable (and acrobatic) yellow lab, named Elvis, who serves as Mel Fisher’s guide dog.

"Growing Up Fisher" will premiere directly after the Olympics on Sunday, February 23 at 10:30 ET on NBC. It will return to its normal schedule on Tuesday, February 25 at 9:30 p.m. ET.
