LIL REL TO STAR IN FOX SITCOM BASED ON HIS LIFE
Stand-up comedian and actor Lil Rel Howery from Get Out has a sitcom project, titled Rel, that has officially been greenlit by Fox. The sitcom, which is inspired by his real life, has Howery playing “Lil Rel, a prideful, self-made success who lives by the code to ‘always believe in yourself and great things will come.’ He finds that attitude put to the test when he learns his wife is having an affair with his own barber.
He tries to rebuild his life post-divorce as a long-distance single father on the South Side of Chicago who’s on a quest for love, respect, and a new barber.”
Sinbad, Jordan L. Jones, and Jessica “Jess Hilarious” Moore also star in the comedy, which will be on the air next season.
