starofthefamily2Fire Captain Buddy Krebs (Brian Dennehy) has a lot going on. His wife has run off with a bellhop, and his son Douggie (Michael Dudikoff) is 17 and eats chilli dogs at seven in the morning.

Buddy’s pretty 16-year-old daughter, Jennie Lee (Kathy Maisnik) is a talented country/pop singer who is starting to make it big.

Unfortunately for Buddy, that means she has suddenly acquired low-cut outfits, out-of-town gigs and a statuesque road manager named Moose (Judy Pioli).

Then there are the guys at his fire station: Max (Danny Mora) is a hotheaded Hispanic who makes mincemeat out of the English language; Feldman (Todd Susman) constantly writes to his mother who thinks he’s a cardiologist, and Rosetti (George DelHoyo) is sex-crazed.
