The Upshaws

Available on Netflix
THE UPSHAWS is a comedy series about a Black, working-class family in Indiana making it through their day-to-day troubles. Bernard and Regina Upshaw (played by Mike Epps and Kim Fields) work and live in Indianapolis, where they are raising 13-year-old Aaliya (Khali Spraggins) and 6-year-old Maya (Journey Cristine). Their adult son Bernard, Jr. (Jermelle Simon), who was born while they were high school sweethearts, also lives nearby. But their lives can get complicated, thanks to Bernie's failure to follow through on some of his responsibilities, and due to the fact that he has a 13-year old son, Kelvin (Diamond Lyons), from a previous relationship with Tasha Lewis (Gabrielle Dennis). It doesn't help that Regina's sister Lucretia (Wanda Sykes), who helped him get his car repair business started, is his biggest critic. But there's a lot of love among all of them, and they still come together as family.
