'The Moodys': Bridget Learns About Her Father's Inability to Maintain an Erection – From Her Mother (Exclusive Video)

But she doesn’t wanna “go into specifics,” obviously

Fox’s holiday event series “The Moodys” premieres Wednesday, with a cast led by Denis Leary and Elizabeth Perkins, who play a married couple who have been through more than a few bumps in the road — and in the bedroom.

In a new clip from the premiere, which is exclusive to TheWrap, Ann Moody (Perkins) tells her adult daughter Bridget (Chelsea Frei) about her father, Sean Moody Sr.’s (Leary), difficulties with maintaining an erection early on in their marriage. These are all words of encouragement meant to help Bridget with her own marital problems, by the way.

Ann asks her daughter if this is about starting a family or money problems.

“You know when your dad and I were first married, we had a huge fight. I just want you to know. I went and stayed at Aunt Kathy’s for a few days. I mean, this is back when your father was drinking. You know, he was having trouble maintaining an erection and he was really bugged about it. I mean, I don’t want to go into specifics –“

“You’re in there, mom!” Bridget shouts. “You’re in the specifics.”

Watch the full clip above to see how this story ends.

Here’s the official description for the series:

THE MOODYS is a single-camera, comedy event series that follows a tight-knit, but slightly dysfunctional, family of five, all of whom gather in their hometown of Chicago for the holidays, with each packing his/her own eccentricities and complications, and hiding secrets from the others – as if the holidays were all about carols and eggnog!

The six-episode event series centers on the Moodys, including SEAN SR. (Emmy Award- and Golden Globe-nominated actor and comedian Denis Leary, “Rescue Me,” “Animal Kingdom”); his wife, ANN (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Elizabeth Perkins, “Sharp Objects,” “Weeds”); and their three grown children – DAN (Francois Arnaud, “The Borgias”), the youngest of the siblings and the “creative one”; BRIDGET (Chelsea Frei, “Sideswiped”), the middle sister and the “overachiever”; and SEAN JR. (Jay Baruchel, the “How to Train Your Dragon” franchise), the oldest sibling and “screw-up,” still living at home with his parents.

“The Moodys” premieres Wednesday with back-to-back episodes at 9/8c and 9:30/8:30c on Fox.
