About The McCarthys

Based on writer Brian Gallivan’s real life, this family comedy is about a loud, sports-crazed Boston clan. At the center is the youngest son, Ronny, who is gay and somewhat sports-challenged. Hoping to gain some independence from his overly involved family, Ronny decides to take a job in Rhode Island. But plans change when his father stuns everyone and asks Ronny, instead of his more qualified siblings, to be his assistant high school basketball coach.
