NBC has set Wednesday, August 5, for a new hour-long block of comedies with “Mr. Robinson” premiering at 9 pm, immediately followed by “The Carmichael Show” at 9:30 pm.
And at 9:30pm, “The Carmichael Show,” which hails from Jerrod Carmichael and Nick Stoller (“Neighbors”), is an irreverent sitcom inspired by Jerrod’s real-life relationships with his say-anything, contrarian father (played by David Alan Grier), his therapist-in training girlfriend (Amber Stevens), his ever-hustling brother (Lil Rel), and his mother (Loretta Devine), who is always, always, always right with Jesus.
“The Carmichael Show” is exec produced by Jerrod Carmichael, Nick Stoller and Ravi Nandan.
The series has been given a full order yet (just 6 episodes to start though), so it’ll be over by the end of September, when the fall TV season really begins. I assume that if the 6 episodes perform very well, NBC will order more.
Ahead of the series’ August 5 premiere, NBC has released a series of behind-the-scenes videos, including on-camera interviews with its key cast talking about their individual characters.
