Bounce TV Launches its First-Ever Original Series, Sitcom "Family Time"

Bounce TV, the nation’s first black over-the-air broadcast TV network, will launch its first-ever original series Family Time – a half hour situation comedy created by Bentley Kyle Evans (The Jamie Foxx Show, Martin, Love That Girl) and produced by Evans and partner Trenten Gumbs. The series will air beginning this summer.

This is a big move for the network, which launched only last September and is already estimated to be available in 75% of black households and 60 million homes nationally.

Family Time centers on the life and times of The Stallworths, a working class African American family who scratches off a lottery ticket and jumps to middle class overnight.

Omar Gooding (Baby Boy, Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper) stars as the patriarch of the show, leading a cast that includes Angell Conwell, Jayla Calhoun and Bentley Kyle Evans, Jr.

Family Time debuts on Bounce TV June 18, and will air on Mondays at 8pm.

I don't have this channel on DirecTV. Wish I did, I'd certainly give it a chance.


I would watch this for Bentley Kyle Evans alone. That man is a fool!


They almost had me until they got to the lottery ticket– sounds a lot like the last season of the Roseanne show.
I have seen a few movies on this channel, though. Interestingly enough they were Mahogany, Sparkle and A Piece of the Action but I must admit, I'm not a regular viewer.


Aw, damn. They got Omar, too? More talent wasted on sub-par programming.


Bentley Kyle Evans Jr? I gotta feeling he didn't have to audition for the part


Has anyone ever watched this channel? I don't even know if I have it.


Omar is a good start. He's just a natural comedian. him. Patriarch…dang… I think I'm getting old.
