Actor and comedian Lil Rel Howery set to star in a sitcom based on his life.
If you think your life is tough, just imagine your wife having an affair with the person most people trust with their lives -and yes, we are talking about the barber. Brand new television show Rel promises to tackle this difficult subject and many more using humor as its main vehicle.
In an upcoming comedy series debuted by Fox, comedian Lil Rel Howery hilariously navigates through his life as a newly divorced family and career man. You might remember the actor from his role as Rod Williams, best friend to the main character Chris in Jordan Peele's Get Out. The role has since earned the actor the "Best Comedic Performance" award at the MTV Movie and TV awards. The actor even had brief stints on Issa Rae's Insecure, and The Carmichael Show. Howery is back and taking on the small screen to remind audiences of his talent and bring laughter into the living rooms of millions.
The show, slated to air on Sunday, September 30th following the NFL kickoff game, has an impressive cast featuring Jordan L. Jones, Jessica Moore, and Sinbad in the roles of Howery's various family members. If you can't wait to watch the series, Fox has made the pilot available to watch on YouTube, thank us later:
