The Upshaws follows a working-class African American family in Indiana, who struggles to make it work and make it right without the blueprints to do it. Epps portrays the head of the household, Bennie Upshaw, as a charming, well-intentioned mechanic and lifelong mess just attempting to step up and care for his family. His family is made up of his wife, Regina, played by Kim Fields, their two young daughters and firstborn son, the teenage son he fathered with another woman, and his sardonic sister-in-law, played by Wanda Sykes. Sykes plays Regina’s sister Lucretia, who is over her brother-in-law just barely getting by without any consequences. With Bennie’s ex-con, newly religious friend Duck, played by Page Kennedy, to help him out, he is determined to keep the peace and make it to the next level as one big happy family.
Regina Hicks, who worked on some of the most popular Black sitcoms and television series from Sister, Sister, Girlfriends, and Insecure, helped co-create Netflix’s new series with Sykes, who both serve as showrunners and executive producers alongside Mike Epps, Page Hurwitz, and Niles Kirchner.
Television desperately needs more Black sitcoms in 2021, and it looks like Netflix heard our cries. Fans are looking forward to seeing these comedy and sitcom legends in a fresh take on a family series.
Kim Fields shared a video with her tv husband showing her excitement for their new series.
