Netflix Gives Series Order to Comedy 'The Upshaws' Starring Wanda Sykes and Mike Epps

Netflix has today given a series order to the original comedy series The Upshaws starring Wanda Sykes (Black-ish) and Mike Epps (Survivor's Remorse). 

The multi-camera comedy centers on a working-class African American family in Indiana struggling to make it work and make it right without the blueprint to do so.

Regina Hicks created the comedy. She will serve as showrunner alongside Sykes. They will executive produce with Epps, Dan Spilo, Page Hurwitz and Niles Kirchner.

Both Sykes and Epps have previously released stand-up comedy specials on Netflix.
