Synopsis

The First Family is about an African-American family that resides in the White House.

The series centres on William Johnson (Christopher B. Duncan), who attempts to balance his family life with his wife Katherine (Kellita Smith) and their two sons and two daughters as they adjust to living in the White House, while maintaining his duties as the second African-American and 45th overall President of the United States.

William, in turn, also has to deal with other family members, including his boisterous sister-in-law Pauletta (Jackée Harry) and William's own father Alvin (John Witherspoon), who despite his constant bickering with Pauletta, will sometimes partner together with her for various schemes.

The series is produced by Entertainment Studios.
