Baze's bar is owned by his father Jack (Robin Thomas), who considers Baze a disappointment, but softens towards him somewhat in later episodes, due to Lux's entrance in their lives. Also seen is Cate's four-times-divorced mother, who had convinced Cate to give up Lux; and Baze's level-headed, understanding mother Ellen (Susan Hogan).
Both love Lux when they meet her, though Ellen seems to have the stronger grandmotherly bond with her.
First she locates her father, Nate Bazile (Kristoffer Polaha), who operates the Open Bar, a business he operates out of a building his own father gave him.
"Baze" lives like an overgrown frat boy above the bar with two roommates: his childhood best friend Math (Austin Basis), a high-school teacher; and Jamie (Reggie Austin), who also works at the bar.
However, even when he signs the papers, Baze discovers that he is already bonding with his newfound daughter, and realizes that she has his eyes.
It is Baze who introduces Lux to her mother Cate Cassidy, co-host of the "Morning Madness" drive time show at Portland radio station K-100 and Baze's former one-night stand from high school.
As the series progresses, Baze becomes more responsible and works harder to get the bar and the loft apartment in shape so it's fit for Lux to stay with him sometimes; eventually he sets aside a corner of the loft for her bedroom.
Their close bond is causing slacker-esque Baze to prove that he can come through for Lux and provide support and love.
Baze also sleeps with Ryan's sister Paige after a drunk incident in season two.
Lux Cassidy (Britt Robertson) has been through the foster care system for almost her whole life.
Cate Cassidy (Shiri Appleby) gave birth to her at 16 but gave her up for adoption after Social Services promised her that the baby would be adopted quickly.
As for Cate, she constantly disappoints Lux, but she does mean well, and Alice (Erin Karpluk), producer of her radio show, often serves as her much-needed confidante.
Ryan breaks up with Cate, but eventually they reconcile and the engagement is back on.
While Life Unexpected received mostly positive reviews, it struggled in the ratings and was cancelled by The CW in 2011.
