Netflix has released the trailer for their new family-friendly “Family Reunion” which arrives on July 10th. The series stars 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.
When the McKellan family moves from Seattle to Georgia to be closer to extended family, the transition is like being a catfish out of water. From three-hour church services and huge humidity hair to M’Dear’s home cooking and family bonding, the everyday ups and downs of Family Reunion are real, memorable, toe tapping, heart stopping, laugh out loud authentic moments.
