Set in Miami, the show revolved around fifteen-year-old Andrew Whitney (Erik von Detten), the only male in a house full of females. He is constantly surrounded by his three sisters (Val, Paige, and Elizabeth), Aunt Jordan, and single mom, Julia. The episodes mostly revolved around Andrew's lack of privacy and dealing with his best friend Keith's crush on his unresponsive older sister, Val. The show was heavily promoted in the summer of 1999. ABC commercials showing teenage girls screaming "EVD!" (the initials of star Erik von Detten) were prominent; at the time, this was the peak of the boy band craze, and this was a common practice. The commercials mentioned very little about the show itself, and did not even mention the name until a few weeks before the show was to debut: a typical advertisement, following clips of girls screaming "EVD!" would follow a shadow of von Detten with a question mark and a voiceover stating "What is EVD? Find out Fridays this fall on ABC." This type of mysterious promotion did little to hold interest in the show once it debuted. The series was canceled after thirteen episodes. Von Detten would later go on to co-star in another TGIF series, Complete Savages, in 2004. That series had an opposite premise in that Von Detten was but one member of an all-male family.
