Comedy/sitcom that aired on ABC in the early '90s. Seven siblings (the Jerrico family) are left orphaned by a tragic accident. To avoid being split up and put into foster care, the eldest brother, Josh steps up to take care of his brothers and sisters. Problems arise when social services comes to check on the kids, so Josh takes it upon himself to pose as their aunt (in Madea-style drag, of course) to keep the case worker from finding out their secret.
