ABC sitcom 'American Housewife' to be set in Westport

A new sitcom depicting a housewife's life in Westport is coming to the ABC lineup this fall.



"American Housewife," formerly called "The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport," will air on Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m.



According to ABC, the show will follow Katie Otto, a confident, unapologetic wife and mother of three who is raising her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport.



She will be played by Katy Mixon from "Mike and Molly."



Some critics of the show's trailer say the sitcom depicts Westport as superficial. The executive director of the Chamber of Commerce says while some are offended, the show could boost tourism.
