ABC’s 2016 summer primetime schedule will include the new comedy series “Uncle Buck” which is set to premiere next week Tuesday, June 14. But the network has decided to release the first episode one week early on Hulu, and you can watch it right here (see below).




Based on the hit movie of the same name, the title character Uncle Buck (played by Mike Epps) is a charismatic hustler who has gotten by on his charm for years. But when his brother Will (James Lesure), and sister-in-law Alexis (Nia Long), move to town and need help with their kids, he steps up to become their “manny.” Will and Alexis are wary of Buck’s questionable parenting skills, but his unique perspective and street smarts provide some unconventional solutions to raising their three rambunctious kids, who typically make a hobby out of terrorizing their nannies.

“Uncle Buck” stars Mike Epps as Buck, Nia Long as Alexis, James Lesure as Will, Iman Benson as Tia, Sayeed Shahidi as Miles and Aalyrah Caldwell as Maizy.

Executive producers are Will Packer, Steven Cragg and Brian D. Bradley.

Co-executive producers are Korin Huggins, Kenny Smith, Michael Pennie and Franco E. Bario.

“Uncle Buck” is produced by Universal Television and ABC Studios.

ABC has released the full pilot episode on Hulu which is embedded below:
