Family Time

Bounce TV original sitcom Family Time is coming upon its second half of the season and is striving. The sitcom airs Tuesdays at 10pm and is in its second season with an order of 10 episodes. Episodes 6-10 are still to come and they begin starting this Tuesday. Family Time chronicles the lives of the recently relocated Stallworth family, guided by Tony (Omar Gooding), a struggling general contractor and Lisa (Angell Conwell), an unfulfilled stay-at-home mom. These high school sweethearts lovingly quarrel with each other and their mischievous children Devin and Ebony 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 (Chris Williams) and Lisa's feisty sisters Rachel (Tanjareen Martin) and Lori (Paula Jai Parker), all set in the tight-knit suburban community of Windsor Hills. Repeats of Bounce TV original sitcom One Love follows at 10:30pm on Tuesday nights. One Love follows the hilarious adventures of Pastor William (Mark Curry, Hangin' with Mr. Cooper) and Carolyn Winters (Sheryl Lee Ralph, Moesha), the first family of Mt. Sinai church. Together for thirty years, they've led their congregation as perfect role models, but when their adult children begin to navigate relationships of their own, the laughs collide with the love. No word yet if One Love will be ordered for a second season, but its first season wrapped up in May after 8 episodes.

As we mentioned, Bounce TV will have two more original sitcoms to come. The first is Mann & Wife. Husband and wife team David Mann (Madea's Big Happy Family) and Tamela Mann (Sparkle), stars of the hit Tyler Perry sitcom Meet The Browns, reunite for a new show which series creator and director Roger Bobb (The Rickey Smiley Show) calls "a black Brady Bunch." The new sitcom will premiere in Winter 2015 and production begins this month. And finally, new sitcom Sisters is an all-new original sitcom centered around a once-famous R&B group called the "Ladies of Essence" who, after life has thrown each of them a few curve balls, find themselves fabulous, forty and forced to live under the same roof. Produced by Roger Bobb's BobbCat Films, Terri J. Vaughn and Cas Siger's Nina Holiday Entertainment and Chip Hurd, this sitcom will premiere in Summer 2015.
