Netflix has ordered a sitcom starring Wanda Sykes and Mike Epps.
The multi-camera series will center on “on a working-class African American family in Indiana struggling to make it work and make it right without the blueprints to do it.”
Both Sykes and Epps, who have specials on the streaming giant, will executive produce the series. Sykes will also be the co-showrunner with Regina Hicks (Insecure, Girlfriends).
Sykes’ first Netflix special, Wanda Sykes: Not Normal, debuted earlier this year. Currently, she recurs on black-ish and also starred in ABC’s Live in Front of a Studio Audience. Epps can be seen soon on the big screen in Dolemite Is My Name, which hits the Toronto International Film Festival before its Netflix debut.
