'The Upshaws' Trailer: Netflix Sitcom Brings Mike Epps, Wanda Sykes And Kim Fields Together

Netflix has dropped the very first trailer for the hotly-anticipated comedy series, The Upshaws. The series Black sitcom vet Regina Hicks and Wanda Sykes.

They are both showrunners on the series, which stars Mike Epps, Sykes, Kim Fields, Page Kennedy, Diamond Lyons, Khali Daniya-Renee Spraggins, Jermelle Simon, Gabrielle Dennis and Journey Christine.

The description: Bennie Upshaw (Mike Epps), the head of a Black working class family in Indianapolis, is a charming, well-intentioned mechanic and lifelong mess just trying his best to step up and care for his family — wife Regina (Kim Fields), their two young daughters (Khali Daniya-Renee Spraggins, Journey Christine) and firstborn son (Jermelle Simon), the teenage son (Diamond Lyons) he fathered with another woman (Gabrielle Dennis) — and tolerate his sardonic sister-in-law (Wanda Sykes), all without a blueprint for success. But the Upshaws are determined to make it work, and make it to the next level, together.

The Upshaws is co-created by Hicks and Sykes, who serve as executive producers alongside Mike Epps, Page Hurwitz and Niles Kirchner.

Watch the trailer below:

The series premieres on May 12.
