When George Bluth, owner of the Bluth Company that builds personal mansions, gets arrested by the Securities and Exchange Commission for various infractions related to his business, his son Michael Bluth is forced to take over. Controlling the falling-apart company is difficult; controlling his ecentric family is impossible. Michael is forced to manage his brother Gob, an aspiring but ultimately failing magician as he tries to work at the company. Michael must also deal with this brother Buster, a dim-witted, naive and basically inept businessman. Throw in his sister Lindsay, who rarely leaves the confines of her own mirror long enough to care about others, and his mother Lucille, who redefines the term "high-maintenance," and Michael clearly has his work cut out for him. He perseveres largely with the sanity provided him by own son George Michael who tries to live up to his father's standard.
