About Keeping Up with the Randalls
If you think the competitive world of fashion is tough, nothing is as intimidating as meeting the boyfriend’s family for the first time. Budding designer Alicia Crosby (Kayla Ewell) must earn the approval of a new family and she must do so under the pressures of their annual athletic extravaganza.
Alicia is a hugely successful children’s fashion designer based in Los Angeles. Her personal life is equally successful as Alicia suspects her boyfriend, Will Randall (Thad Luckinbill), is going to pop the question any day now. But first, Alicia must survive meeting Will’s family, which means getting down and dirty in their annual “Randall Reunion Races,” where she is up against everyone from Will’s dad, Doug (Tom Schanley) and mom, Barb (Roma Downey), to seemingly sweet Grandma Dorrie (Marion Ross), to even Will’s ex-girlfriend, Kris (McKenna Jones). It is no surprise to anyone, Alicia included, that she is not up to the athletic challenges. Almost out of patience, Alicia at last sees a glimmer of hope when she finds creative ways to demonstrate her strengths instead of her weaknesses. Just as the stopwatch ceases to tick, she might not only win the race, but finally, a place in the hearts of her soon-to-be family.
