‘American Housewife’ Episode Guide (Nov. 15): The Family’s Thanksgiving Plans Go Awry

“Family Secrets” (11/15/17) – Greg makes big plans to impress his parents when they visit for Thanksgiving; but his vision is shattered when his neighbor Spencer and Katie’s mom, Kathryn, arrive unannounced and nothing goes as intended, on a special Thanksgiving episode of “American Housewife,” airing WEDNESDAY, NOV. 15 (9:31-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are George Hamilton as Spencer Blitz, Wendie Malick as Kathryn, Julia Duffy as Amanda Otto and Barry Bostwick as Thomas Otto.

“Family Secrets” was written by Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz and directed by John Putch.

Katie Otto, a confident, unapologetic wife and mother of three, raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, filled with “perfect” mommies and their “perfect” offspring.

Joining Katie in her perfectly imperfect world is her husband, Greg Otto, who supports her in every way possible, but with a dash of reality thrown in as they work to ensure their children – including their oldest teenage daughter, Taylor, who is already set on the “perfect” path; their middle son Oliver who has one goal in life: to be rich; and their youngest, Anna Kat, who needs a little extra help navigating life – do not end up like everyone else. Katie also has her closest friends in town, Angela and Doris, who help her keep it all in perspective.

Despite her flaws and unconventional ways, Katie ultimately only wants the best for her kids and will fight tooth and nail to instill some good old-fashioned values in them, if it’s the last thing she does.

The series stars Katy Mixon as Katie Otto, Diedrich Bader as Jeff Otto, Johnny Sequoyah as Taylor, Daniel DiMaggio as Harrison, Julia Butters as Anna-Kat, Carly Hughes as Angela and Ali Wong as Doris.
