While the new sitcom "Mike & Molly" spins around two single people who hook up at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting, the stars and creative team insist the show isn't about being fat. Instead, they say, it's about people who happen to be fat.

"The questions feel a little bit like Hollywood is going, 'Are there fat people out there where you come from?'" joked actor Billy Gardell, who plays Mike.

"Mike & Molly" is the brainchild of Mark Roberts, working again with Chuck Lorre ("Two and Half Men"), who serves as an executive producer.

"I would hope that if this show does anything, it's not going to start a trend of 90 shows about fat people, because that's not what we're about," he said.

"But if it starts a trend of putting people with different kinds of flaws that are real on TV, I think everybody will breathe a sigh of relief."

"Mike & Molly" debuts Sept. 20 on CBS, 9:30 p.m.
