“Block Party” Season 1 Finale (07/05/16; 9:30-10:00PM) – 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, on “Uncle Buck,” TUESDAY, JUNE 5 (9:30-10:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in “The Interrogation” are Big Sean as Flashback Miles and Oscar Nunez as Hector.

“The Interrogation” was written by Brian Bradley & Stephen Cragg, and directed by Ken Whittingham.

Based on the hit movie of the same name, Uncle Buck (Mike Epps) is a charismatic hustler who has gotten by on his charm for years. But when his brother, Will (James Lesure), and sister-in-law, Alexis (Nia Long), move to town and need help with their kids, he steps up to become their nanny, and their lives will never be the same.

Will and Alexis are wary of Buck’s questionable parenting skills, but his unique perspective and street smarts provide some unconventional solutions to raising their three rambunctious kids, who typically make a hobby out of terrorizing their nannies. Like most teenagers, Tia (Iman Benson) is resentful of her mother and feeling neglected when Alexis starts a new job. Miles (Sayeed Shahidi) and Maizy (Aalyrah Caldwell) are wise beyond their years, each with their own common love of pushing boundaries and testing the adults in their lives.

Buck will attempt to apply his ‘know-how’ from the ‘hood as he transitions to his new life with Will, Alexis and the kids in the ‘burbs. But it’s definitely going to take more than hustle and charm to win over and earn respect from this family.

“Uncle Buck” stars Mike Epps as Buck, Nia Long as Alexis, James Lesure as Will, Iman Benson as Tia, Sayeed Shahidi as Miles and Aalyrah Caldwell as Maizy.

Executive producers are Will Packer, Steven Cragg and Brian D. Bradley. Co-executive producers are Korin Huggins, Kenny Smith and Franco E. Bario. “Uncle Buck” is produced by Universal Television and ABC Studios.
