Cedric The Entertainer and Tichina Arnold are set to play husband and wife on CBS’s newest comedy, The Neighborhood. Today, a trailer of the new comedy has been released. For the nearly 4-minute feature, we see what happens when The Butler family meets their new neighbors, The Johnsons from Michigan. Of course, some pretty clear differences are addressed judging from the trailer. The rest of the cast includes Max Greenfield, Sheaun McKinney, Marcel Spears, Dreama Walker and Hank Greenspan. CBS has yet to announce the shows premiere date.
Here’s a comedy about what happens when the friendliest guy in the Midwest moves his family (the Johnsons) to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where not everyone looks like him—or appreciates his extreme neighborliness. Cedric the Entertainer stars as Calvin Butler, the Johnsons’ opinionated next-door neighbor, who is wary of the newcomers, and certain that the Johnsons will disrupt the culture on the block.
