Part of our #CaptainAmericaEvent was being able to screen two episodes of The Real O’Neals and then do Q&As with Noah Galvin (“Kenny”) and Jay R. Ferguson(“Pat”), Matt Shively (“Jimmy”) and Mary Hollis Inboden (“Jodi”), and Executive Producers Casey Johnson, David Windsor & Stacy Traub. It was fun to meet them all and talk about the show and what life is like on and off the set. One of the episodes that we screened is called “The Real Retreat” and is so funny! ABC’s The Real O’Neals is on tonight at 8:30 pm.
We were able to screen this episode with Matt Shively and it was great to hear his comments here and there about the show. The show is “When Jimmy is unexpectedly named Faith Leader for the weekend at the Catholic Youth Retreat, a jealous Kenny decides to take on his older brother’s role as ring leader of the bad kids. Home alone without the kids, Pat invites a new lady friend over, and Eileen can’t help but enlist Jodi to spy on them, with surprising results.” This one had us laughing the whole time.
If you haven’t watch The Real O’Neals yet, here is what it is about:
A fresh take on a seemingly perfect Catholic family, whose lives take an unexpected turn when surprising truths are revealed. Instead of ruining their family, the honesty triggers a new, messier chapter where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real. “The Real O’Neals” stars Martha Plimpton as Eileen, Jay R. Ferguson as Pat, Noah Galvin as Kenny, Matthew Shively as Jimmy, Bebe Wood as Shannon and Mary Hollis Inboden as Jodi. “The Real O’Neals” was written by David Windsor and Casey Johnson. Executive producers are David Windsor, Casey Johnson, Brian Pines, Dan McDermott, Stacy Traub and Dan Savage. “The Real O’Neals” is produced by ABC Studios.
