The Carmichael Show is an American sitcom created by Nicholas Stoller, Jerrod Carmichael, Ari Katcher, and Willie Hunter which follows the life of stand up comedian Jerrod Carmichael as he navigates through life with his therapist in-training girlfriend and his heavily opinionated family.
Inspired by the life of comedian Jerrod Carmichael, the series follows Jerrod and his opinionated North Carolina family as they navigate topics that all families face today in America. Nothing is too uncomfortable to explore, including police protests, guns and religion.
Jerrod often finds himself debating such issues with his old-school father, Joe (David Alan Grier), his devoutly religious mother, Cynthia (Loretta Devine), his progressive live-in girlfriend, Maxine (Amber Stevens West), his recently separated brother, Bobby (Rel Howery), and Bobby's estranged and outspoken wife, Nekeisha (Tiffany Haddish).
And somewhere in the middle of all of their disagreeing is the heart of this family.
In the Season 2 premiere, "Everybody Cheats": When Cynthia sees her Reverend with someone who is not his wife, the family comes together to discuss cheating and consequences.
Jerrod is shocked when this family discussion reveals that Maxine is no stranger to infidelity...
Jerrod Carmichael, Nick Stoller, Ravi Nandan and Danielle Sanchez-Witzel serve as executive producers. The Carmichael Show is co-produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television and Universal Television.
