TV show description:
This comedy TV series is based on the 1989 feature film of the same name. It is the second Uncle Buck television series. The first ran for one season on CBS as part of the 1990-91 season.
Buck Russell (Mike Epps) is a fun-loving but irresponsible guy who needs a job and a place to stay. By happy coincidence, his brother Will (James Lesure) and sister-in-law Alexis (Nia Long) need his help.
Their nanny has just quit and they need someone to take care of their children, Tia (Iman Benson), Miles (Sayeed Shahidi), and Maizy (Aalyrah Caldwell).
Buck’s unconventional personality just may make him the right fit for the family — and they may be the answer to his problems, too.
Episode #8 — Block Party
Buck takes the whole family back to his and Will’s old South Side neighborhood after he realizes the kids have no idea what life growing up there was really like.
First aired: July 5, 2016.
