In-Laws premiered on NBC in on September 24, 2002. Newlywed Matt, with the support of his wife Alex, has quit his job to go to culinary school. But in order to make ends meet in the meantime, they've grudgingly moved in with Alex's parents, Victor and Marlene. Since Marlene is caught up in her real estate job and Alex is busy working double shifts, Victor and Matt have plenty of "alone" time. Unfortunately, Matt is terrified of Victor and Victor isn't thrilled to have an "outsider" on his turf. Luckily, Matt and Victor have one thing in common that just might make this awkward situation work: their love for Alex.
