Imagine your best friend started dating one of your parents. That’s exactly what happens in The CW’s upcoming half-hour comedy, Significant Mother.

The network announced Friday that the new series—which was originally developed for The CW’s digital studio, CW Seed—will join its 2015 summer lineup.

Significant Mother will star Josh Zuckerman as Nate, a Portland restaurateur who returns from a business trip to find that his best friend and roommate has begun dating his recently separated mom, Lydia (Krista Allen). At the same time, Nate’s dad (Jonathan Silverman) is determined to win Lydia back, with some help from his son. The show follows Nate as he navigates his new relationships and attempts to find love of his own.

Erin Cardillo, Richard Keith, Tripp Reed and Les Morgenstein serve as the show’s executive producers, with Cardillo and Keith also penning the script.

Production on Significant Mother is set to begin shortly. A premiere date for the show has not yet been announced.
