Indie Wire is reporting that NickMom has ordered 13 episodes of Tia Mowry-Hardict’s new scripted comedy series Instant Mom.  As previously reported, Instant Mom  follows young party girl Stephanie (played by Mowry-Hardrict) who trades in cosmos for carpools when she marries an older man, Charlie (Michael Boatman), with three kids. Stephanie slowly grows into her role as a full-time stepmom while struggling to maintain some sense of her fun-loving, slightly irresponsible life.

Veteran television and stage actress Sheryl Lee Ralph plays Stephanie’s mother Maggie while Sydney Park, Tylen Williams and Damarr Calhoun play her three new children.  Instant Mom  will premiere later on this year on NickMom and repeat on Nick at Nite.

In the meantime, you can catch Tia along with her sister Tamera Mowry-Housley this summer on the STYLE network series Tia & Tamera. She will also appear on the big screen this fall in David E. Talbert’s romantic comedy Baggage Claim.

Congratulations Tia!
