Yesterday we got our first look of Jerrod Carmichael’s NBC series, The Carmichael Show. The show which will be based off Carmcihael’s life looks to be a comedy that discusses a few relatable topics for viewers. Jerrod recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter and explained the intention of the show.
The show’s executive producer Jerrod Carmichael said the new comedy aims “to actually reflect the conversations that are being had in living rooms amongst families, amongst couples.” “Our intention is to talk about things, like to actually reflect the conversations that are being had in living rooms amongst families, amongst couples,” said Carmichael. “The most important thing for us is to really be people that exist in the world. A lot of comedy seems so isolated and it seems removed from our daily realities, and it’s criminal not to talk about these things. It’s criminal not to reflect the real conversations that America is having especially at this time when it’s all about conversations.” Carmichael said it was always his intention to broach these hot-button issues. “I love All in the Family. I love that dynamic and just families that seem very honest, like The Cosby Show,” said Carmichael before taking a pause. “Am I allowed to say that?”
Jerrod, Lil Rel, Loretta Devine, David Alan Grier, Amber West and cast to premiere ‘The Carmichael Show’ on Wednesday, August 5th a 9:30pm EST.
