Bounce Sets Season 2 Premiere of 'Family Time' + Guest Stars to Include Lynn Whitfield, Jackee, Rodney Perry & More

The new, 10-episode second season of Bounce TV’s popular sitcom “Family Time,” will premiere Tuesday night, Oct. 14 at 10 p.m. (Eastern Time) with new episodes premiering weekly in that time slot.

“Family Time” chronicles the lives of the Stallworth family who have recently relocated to the suburbs, headed by the dad Tony Stallworth (Omar Gooding), a struggling general contractor, and his wife Lisa (Angell Conwell), an unfulfilled stay-at-home mom.  These high school sweethearts lovingly quarrel with each other and their mischievous children Devin (Bentley Kyle Evans, Jr.) and Ebony (Jayla Calhoun) as they make up their own rules to love, marriage, and family along the way.  When they are not battling each other they are contending with a host of family, friends, and neighbors, including Tony’s snobby older brother Todd (Christopher Williams) and Lisa’s feisty sisters Rachel (Tanjareen Martin) and Lori (Paula Jai Parker), all set in the tight knit community of Windsor Hills. The half hour situation comedy was created by Bentley Kyle Evans (“The Jamie Foxx Show,” “Martin,” “Love That Girl”) and is produced by Evans and partner Trenton Gumbs (“Love That Girl”).

Guest stars in season two include Lynn Whitfield, Lawrence Hilton Jacobs, Jackee, Richard Gant, Rodney Perry and Judyanne Elder.
