‘The Carmichael Show’ Episode Guide (April 10): The Family Tackles the Prison System

“Ex Con” (04/10/16) – When Jerrod’s childhood friend gets out of prison after 10 years, the Carmichael’s must confront their true feelings about the system, whether or not a person can change, and what responsibilities a community has to look out for each other.

Meanwhile, Jerrod must confront how much his own life has changed while Joe and Cynthia find their realist attitudes in conflict with Maxine’s (Amber Stevens West) idealistic side. The series also stars David Alan Grier, Loretta Devine, Lil Rel Howery. Guest stars include Tiffany Haddish and Antwon Tanner.

From the comedy of Jerrod Carmichael and Nick Stoller (“Neighbors”) comes an irreverent sitcom inspired by Jerrod’s relationships with his say-anything contrarian father, therapist-in training girlfriend, ever-hustling brother and mother, who is always, always, always right with Jesus.

Taking the next step and moving in together, Jerrod and his girlfriend, Maxine (Amber Stevens West), are your average young couple trying to make it in the city. They’re smart, motivated and looking to build a fulfilling life together. The only thing standing in their way is family. Between Jerrod’s larger-than-life brother, Bobby (Lil Rel Howery), and his smothering and passionate parents (David Alan Grier, Loretta Devine), Jerrod and Maxine will be put to the test navigating the boundaries of romance, family and sanity.

Jerrod Carmichael, Nick Stoller and Ravi Nandan serve as executive producers. “The Carmichael Show” is co-produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Universal Television.
