The CW (ended 2007)
Robert James (Duane Martin), an entertainment reporter for a local Los Angeles television station, is handsome, smart, and thoroughly modern in his thinking - as he should be - considering his romantic and parental entanglements. Recently divorced from the somewhat self-absorbed Neesee (LisaRaye McCoy), the mother of their son, Bobby Jr. (Khamani Griffin), he is madly in love with his fiancée, Tia Jewel (Elise Neal), a funny, clever kindergarten teacher who helped him get over the demise of his first marriage. Robert and Tia are of a new generation. They refuse to buy into the old stereotype that being divorced means you can't get along with the ex. So Robert does things differently as he graciously and humorously works to maintain the peace, however uneasy, between his ex-wife and soon-to-be new bride.
Providing friendship and varying degrees of support and advice to the couple is Dirk Black (Tony Rock), Robert's best friend and producer, who lives the Hollywood single life, and Tia's best friend and fellow teacher Jonelle Abrahams(Terri J. Vaughn). As viewers look into the life experiences of an American blended family, Robert and his extended family will bring them laughs, and true warmth as Robert always tries to do the best for everyone he loves.
In season three, Tia and Jonelle were written out of the series.
In season four, Dirk's long-lost daughter Courtney (Lavian Greene) joined the cast.
The show was executive produced and created by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.moreless
