Through Thicke and Thin, America’s Favorite Dad Returns as The Patriarch of His Real-Life Modern Family…
SEASON TWO OF POP’S REALITY SIT-COM “UNUSUALLY THICKE” BRINGS BACK ALAN THICKE, WIFE TANYA AND SON CARTER ON SEPTEMBER 21
LOS ANGELES, CA – September 6, 2016 – Alan Thicke and his family blur the lines of reality television and sitcom in UNUSUALLY THICKE season two on Pop returning Wednesday, September 21 at 9:00 PM, ET/PT.  Between his fiery, much younger Latina wife Tanya and his three sons – teenaged Carter, pop star Robin and marijuana dispensary owner Brennan – Alan has his work cut out for him as a father, a husband, and a Hollywood actor, writer and icon.
 
Pop will air back-to-back half-hour episodes of UNUSUALLY THICKE every week for the show’s 14-episode season. Buzzworthy storylines are peppered with cameo appearances by an eclectic group of Alan’s celebrity friends, ranging from Russell Peters and Cedric the Entertainer to Lance Bass, Kato Kaelin Alex Trebek, Cat Cora, and Alan’s son, Robin Thicke.
 
“Season two has us pushing envelopes with our family drama, including a same-sex prom, an ‘accidental’ porn shoot, Tanya brawling with some social media haters, a wedding, a divorce party, and the first Cannabis commercial ‘Pot Spots!,’” said Alan. “Through it all, ‘Unusually Thicke’ remains in constant search of good humor and fun. Come along for the ride!’
 
“Alan, Tanya and Carter charmed fans in the first season of ‘Unusually Thicke,’ as the show’s debut season attracted one of Pop’s largest A18-49 audiences,” said Jessie Surovell, Vice President, Development at Pop. "We are excited to see where America’s favorite TV dad and his real-life family go next in this hilarious series that so effortlessly blends reality television with situational comedy."
