The show revolves around Kirk Hartman, played by Kirk Cameron, an aspiring illustrator and recent college graduate living in Greenwich Village. After his aunt decides to move to Florida to get married, Kirk is left in charge of his younger brothers and sister. It also stars Chelsea Noble, Will Estes, Courtland Mead, Louis Vanaria, and Debra Mooney.


Production notes

Kirk was one of only two series produced by Bickley-Warren Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions that was not produced by Miller-Boyett Productions (the other being Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, which William Bickley and Michael Warren served as showrunners/executive producers during that series' final three seasons).

During the development stage, the series originally went under the working title Life Happens,[1] and was originally conceived as a series for ABC (who had broadcast other series produced by Bickley and Warren, and their production partners Tom L. Miller and Robert Boyett) before the network's decision to move away from family sitcoms, just prior to the network's 1995 purchase by The Walt Disney Company.[2]
