  • Uncle Buck (Race Lifted Series): (the other) Doug takes care of his brother's kids.
  • Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Fifteen years after being abducted into a cult by Don Draper, Erin Hannon moves to New York with Sebastian as her roommate and works for Jenna Maroney.
  • Underbelly: Let's start with the narrator, after Tess of Blue Heelers left to have a baby (actually worked into the show as she alludes to a child) she took a demotion, then was called up as a detective and eventually Task Force Purana. Her old boss used to be a judge, who here was on the take and accepted bribes. Her old boyfriend was one of the detectives on the Silk/Miller murders. The girlfriend of one of the deceased police is an old colleague. A former Heeler became a hitman. The detective she worked with is now a mafia lawyer. The old sergeant she was at odds with also works for the mafia. To cut a very long story short both series are ripe for this with many of the actors being cop, crook and everything in between in one show or the other.
  • Underground: Det. Stabler and his epic goatee is "conflicted" about this whole slavery thing.
  • Unforgettable: Agent Samantha has a Photographic Memory.
  • Up All Night: Kelly Bundy and GOB Bluth take care of the infant daughter of her boss, an average prostitute.
