“Family Time” comedically chronicles the lives of the Stallworth family, headed by the dad Tony, a struggling general contractor played by Omar Gooding, and his wife Lisa, an unfulfilled stay-at-home mom portrayed by Angell Conwell. When they are not battling each other, they are contending with a host of family, friends, and neighbors including their mischievous children Devin (Bentley Kyle Evans Jr.) and Ebony (Jayla Calhoun), Tony’s financially-challenged best friend Donnie (Clayton Thomas) and Lisa’s feisty sisters Rachel (Tanjareen Thomas) and Lori (Paula Jai Parker).
“In The Cut” stars Dorien Wilson (The Parkers, Dream On) as an accomplished entrepreneur and barbershop owner, Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show) as the new co-owner of his beauty salon next store, Ken Lawson (The Parkers) as his illegitimate son who shows up out of the blue one day and John Marshall Jones (The Smart Guy) as his best friend and employee.
Both shows were created by Bentley Kyle Evans and are produced by Evans and partner Trenten Gumbs.
