Netflix Drops The Official Trailer For ‘The Upshaws’ Starring Mike Epps, Kim Fields, & Wanda Sykes

Netflix has been teasing a new sitcom called The Upshaws starring legends Mike Epps, Kim Fields, and Wanda Sykes. Those who’ve been excited to see what’s in store are in luck, as the streaming service dropped the official trailer today. Due May 12, the series follows a mechanic who is doing his best to take care of his family.

Here’s the official synopsis:

“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.”

I saw the jamie foxx sitcom was number 1 on netflix all last week. Dope to see netflix actual putting action behind their words and trying to give black people projects that don't just potray us as the stereotypical thugs.

Now this looks promising. This looks like what I wanted from Jamie Foxx and David Alan Grier. I’m already laughing at them snapping on each other in the trailer.

I hope they didn't censor Mike Epps. He's at his best when people not trying to control his comedy

Similar to the YouTube parodys Judge Joe Brown, Dennis Rodman etc.

SIGH....

.... I know ima come off as a hater .... I apologize in advance.

Yes, I haven't seen the show yet. Yes, its cool that they are giving black actors and comedians some room to shine. Thats beautiful.

And Wanda Sykes is the goat. She's the one making the show funny probably.

With that said ... No black family lives in a house like that. Thats the Family Matters Set. The deco is off. Who are they marketing tooo?? It has to be people 50 yrs and above. The whole look feels so dated.

These new black centered shows must have low budgets or something because there's nothing fresh about it. Tyler Perry comes up with this type of sit-com every season. Its played.

Reference:
Atlanta, Dave, or Even Modern family.

These Netflix show seem to me shot the same way. Rushed. The timing of the sitcoms feels a moment off to me. Also, every line is punchline. I tried to watch the Jamie Foxx. Went back and watched the OG.

You know what it is for me. ... and sorry to type so much...

But, these shows feel toooo WHITE people approved .... cosmetically.

Its like they have to clean it up so the white market can accept it AND THEN! they can drop in the black talent.

It doesn't feel built black from the bottom up.

Thats why Shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and Modern Family or The Office are amazing shows. White people work in ALL the departments. Hair make up, set design, writing, producing ect.

There needs to be an authentic blackness ... and Im not just talking "hood" or "poor". Because Blackish , does a great job at speaking through a modern lens.
