  • Darryl Hughley moved his family from the inner city to the suburbs, and the neighborhood hasn't been the same since. Part Archie Bunker, part George Jefferson; with an opinion about everything, Darryl Hughley knows exactly why he moved to there. Let's just hope the suburbs can survive the move. Based on comedian D. L. Hughley's real-life experiences, Darryl is a stubborn man, totally devoted to his wife Yvonne and trying to raise his head-strong kids in an upwardly mobile world that he fears will spoil them. Together, the "vending machine king" and his friend and employee Milsap, who has followed the Hughleys to the suburbs, make life difficult for their tall, loud, very white neighbor Dave. Meanwhile, Dave's wife Sally, who has bonded with Yvonne, tries to apply her professional skills as a psychologist to the neighborhood with hilarious results.moreless
