Tucker is an American sitcom created by Ron Milbauer and Terri Hughes, that aired on NBC from October 2, 2000 to April 2, 2001. Eight episodes were broadcast in pairs during rerun season in March 2001.

Premise

Tucker's parents have divorced, and so he is forced to move into his despised aunt Claire's house, with her decidedly calmer airplane pilot husband Jimmy and strange cousin Leon. Originally disappointed at the arrangement, he spots their gorgeous neighbour McKenna. From that point forward, he valiantly attempts to become her boyfriend, competing with Seth Green.

The series revolves around divorce, teenage culture and teenage love.

In the UK and Ireland the show aired on Nickelodeon.
