Hey, remember Derek on Life With Derek? That show with the two combined families with feuding step siblings — that also had confusing sexual tension? Yeah, his name is Michael Seater and he’s pretty kick ass.

This time around, Michael is back with his equally nostalgic co-producer for Sadie’s Last Day On Earth.

Oh hey.
