Netflix has announced a new live-action comedy series “Family Reunion” that will star Tia Mowry (“Sister, Sister”, “Instant Mom”) and Loretta Devine (“Grey’s Anatomy”, “The Carmichael Show”). Mowry plays Cocoa McKellan, a free spirited mother from Seattle. When she and her former football-playing husband Moz and their four children travel from their home in the big city to the small town of Columbus, Georgia for the McKellan Family Reunion, they get to know an extended family they didn’t even realise they were missing. Devine plays the loving but strict matriarch of the family, M’Dear.
The show is executive produced and created by Meg DeLoatch (“Fuller House”, “Eve”) and directed by Eric Dean Seaton (“Prince of Peoria”, “Modern Family”). Production has already begun in Los Angeles.
