Here’s the setup: When Phil (Ty Burrell) gets invited to appear in a real-estate news segment for the local news, he has an unexpected run-in with his weatherman hero, Rainer Shine. However, storm clouds quickly roll in when he introduces him to Hayley (Sarah Hyland) and, well, let’s just say the temperature in the studio quickly starts to rise.

Fillion’s first Family episode airs Wednesday at 9/8c on ABC.
