My Wild Daughters is a US sitcom that aired on ABC from 2002 to 2005. It is based on the book 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter by W. Bruce Cameron. It was first broadcast in German-speaking countries in 2004 on the Disney Channel pay-TV channel, followed shortly afterwards by free-TV broadcasting in Germany on ProSieben and in Austria on ORF 1. It was also broadcast on Kabel eins and in Switzerland on 3+.

My Wild Daughters is a sitcom about a married couple with three children who live in suburban Detroit, Michigan. The father, Paul Hennessy, starts out as a sports journalist but later moves to another department. As his wife Cate wants to resume her job as a nurse, he takes an active role in raising his children and thus has to move his work home. But soon he is overwhelmed with the responsibility of raising his two wild teenage daughters. So he writes a new column about it and gives other parents tips to avoid his mistakes.

After main actor John Ritter died of an aortic dissection during the filming of the second season, the series subsequently (from episode 4 of the second season) also revolved around how the family copes with the sudden death of the father. Thus, the grandfather and the nephew C.J. also appeared in the series for the first time. The two new characters then became a permanent part of the series.


In 10 episodes I was allowed to dub Nicole Hayden as Jenna Sharpe under the direction of Martin Schmitz.
