I’m super into The Carmichael Show, so I’m glad to hear that it’s been renewed for a second season. I’ve been waiting for a show like this for a while now, and I’m really excited to see that it’s getting the recognition it deserves.
“Carmichael,” a Universal and 20th Century Fox Television co-production, is a semi-autobiographical comedy based on comedian Jerrod Carmichael’s real-life relationships. Carmichael, Nick Stoller, A24’s Ravi Nandan and Danielle Sanchez-Witzel exec produce the multi-camera series.
I’ve been watching the show since its pilot, and I actually really enjoy it. What I like most, is they are not afraid to talk about real issues, and offer various perspectives on controversial topics. The show stars David Alan Grier, Loretta Devine, Amber Stevens West and Lil Rel Howery.
“We’re extremely proud of ‘The Carmichael Show’ and Jerrod’s voice and point of view is a breath of fresh air in a comedy series,” said President NBC Entertainment Jennifer Salke. “This show made a big impact with viewers and critics because it’s funny and relatable but also because it’s fearless about discussing issues that are significant in the world today. We appreciate all the hard work that has gone into this new family comedy from the producers, cast, and crew and look forward to bringing it back to the schedule later this season.”
