Nerdophiles had the pleasure of chatting with the talented team in front and behind the camera of the new Netflix comedy, The Upshaws!
The show follows Bennie Upshaw (Mike Epps), working-class husband to Regina (Kim Fields) and father to four children. While Bennie’s intentions are seemingly pure, they don’t always come off that way. As Bennie learns and tries to do the right thing in the face of some pretty tough and hilarious decisions, his sister-in-law (Wanda Sykes) will never let him live his mistakes or choices down. This show tackles everything from parenting to blended families, workplace changes, inclusion and so much more.
Watch our sit-down with star & Executive Producer Mike Epps, star Kim Fields, and co-creator, star, and Executive Producer Wanda Sykes, as they talk Black sitcom legacy, what this new series means to them, representation, and more!
And here’s a sneak peek of the “Night Out” episode as well!
