A new family is moving to TBS on Wednesday nights. The Kingston-Persons family is at the center of TBS’s original sitcom “Are We There Yet?,” a new series based on the Revolution Studios movie of the same name. “Are We There Yet?” is executive produced by Ice Cube (Friday and Barbershop) and stars Terry Crews (Everybody Hates Chris) and Essence Atkins (Half and Half) as a newly married couple whose blended family faces the challenges of everyday life. “Are We There Yet?” premieres Wednesday, June 2, with back-to-back episodes at 9 and 9:30 PM (ET/PT).

 

“Are We There Yet?” opens where the popular film left off, with Nick (Crews) and Suzanne (Atkins) newly married. After six months, their family is beginning to show growing pains, from the complexities of life as newlyweds to weathering the storm of teenage children. Work makes life all the more complicated. Former athlete Nick has sold his sports paraphernalia store and now works in information technology. Party planner Suzanne also has a hectic professional schedule.

Teala Dunn and Coy Stewart co-star as Lindsey and Kevin, Nick and Suzanne’s 14 and 10-year-old children. They spend their time texting friends and playing on the computer instead of connecting with family. Telma Hopkins (Family Matters) plays Nick’s mother, who isn’t happy about his marriage or her new role as a grandmother. Keesha Sharp (Girlfriends, Why Did I Get Married) is Suzanne’s best friend; she has a taste for men and the finer things in life. Comedian Christian Finnegan plays Nick’s best friend and owner of a sports memorabilia store. Ice Cube plays a recurring role as Suzanne’s SWAT officer brother.

 

“Are We There Yet?” comes to TBS from Debmar-Mercury, Cube Vision and Revolution Studios. Revolution’s Joe Roth and Vince Totino and Cube Vision’s Ice Cube and Matt Alvarez serve as executive producers, along with award-winning show-runner Ali LeRoi, who won an Emmy® for his work on “The Chris Rock Show” and an NAACP Image Award for “Everybody Hates Chris.”

 

Using the unique model created by Debmar-Mercury for “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” and “Meet the Browns,” TBS has ordered 10 episodes of the new sitcom, with the option for an additional 90 episodes.
