TV show description:
This comedy series is loosely based on the family of its star and co-creator, comic Jerrod Carmichael.
Jerrod Carmichael (Carmichael) and his therapist in-training girlfriend, Maxine (Amber Stevens West), are an average young couple trying to make it in the city. They’re taking the next step in their relationship and are moving in together. They’re smart, motivated and looking to build a fulfilling life together.
The only thing standing in their way is his family — larger-than-life brother, ever-hustling Bobby (Lil Rel Howery); loud, proud and Christian mother, Cynthia (Loretta Devine); and outspoken and contrarian father, Joe (David Alan Grier).
Jerrod and Maxine are put to the test navigating the boundaries of romance, family and sanity.
Episode #32 — Gold Diggers
When Bobby brings home his new girlfriend, a debate about the effects of money ensues that uncovers something about Maxine’s financial situation that Jerrod never knew and doesn’t know if he can handle.
First aired: August 9, 2017.
