Plot Synopsis

Filmed before a studio audience, JUST ROLL WITH IT is a half-hour series that blends improvisational comedy with a scripted family sitcom that allows the studio audience the opportunity to select the direction of key scenes. This series follows the newly blended Bennett-Blatt family -- preteen stepsiblings Blair and Owen and their fun-loving parents Rachel and Byron -- as they navigate everyday family life and the ups and downs of adolescence while balancing a household of contrasting personalities. Blair, often a rebel without a cause, is the polar opposite of her very regimented but loving mom Rachel, who is a decorated military veteran and station manager for BEATZ 101. Owen, a model student who thrives when following rules and detailed schedules, tries to manage his creative and charismatic father Byron, an on-air radio personality on BEATZ 101.

At unpredictable intervals unknown to the cast or audience, the scripted action is suddenly interrupted by the sound of a foghorn. The actors are sequestered backstage while the studio audience uses electronic voting devices at their seats to select which of the three comedic scenarios they would like to see take place next. After votes are cast, the crew quickly resets and the actors return to the stage to continue the unscripted scene, improvising throughout it. Through it all, the Bennett-Blatts, and the actors who play them, take whatever life -- and the studio audience -- throws at them.

On Friday, June 14, 2019 at 9:45pm ET/PT, Disney Channel debuted a sneak-peek episode of the series, with the official series premiere on Wednesday, June 19 at 8pm. In the series opener, "The Birthday War," Owen doesn't have the heart to tell his dad that he has outgrown an embarrassing birthday tradition, while Blair learns that Owen is now friends with her ex-best friend Ruth.
The sophomore season of JUST ROLL WITH IT premiered on Sunday, March 15, 2020 at 8:45pm ET/PT on Disney Channel, as J.C. Currais becomes a regular cast member and John Ratzenberger joins the series in a recurring role as Blair's grandfather. The season also includes "wild" animals, real-life wedding vows with legal matrimony as part of a storyline and feats of epic proportions. The studio audience votes for wacky scenarios that the cast must improvise their way through during the show taping. Additional Season 2 guest stars include Charles Shaughnessy, Johnny Pemberton, Jason Earles, Debra Wilson, Jillian Shea Spaeder, and Kingston Foster.

In the season opener, "Grandpa Moves In," after surviving a harrowing ordeal on the lake, the Bennett-Blatt family learns that Rachel's mischievous and somewhat unpredictable dad has been kicked out of his retirement community and needs to move in with them.
