EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: Essence Atkins & Terry Crews' "Are We There Yet" Sitcom

TheYBF.com has the exclusive First Look at Ice Cube's newest venture--the tv adaptation of his successful movie series "Are We There Yet?".  The tv sitcom hits TBS this summer, and stars Ice Cube himself, Terry Crews, Essence Atkins, Keesha Sharp, and others.  It's all about a blended YBF family and their comedic take on coming together to "make it work".

 

The exclusive extended trailer when you read on...

 

 

On June 2nd, TBS will debut the new sitcom “Are We There Yet?” starring Terry Crews ("Everybody Hates Chris") and Essence Atkins ("Half and Half") as Nick and Suzanne, a newly married couple whose blended family faces the challenges of everyday life.

From dealing with the complexities of being newlyweds to weathering the storm of teenage children this series is packed with relatable moments for all families. Telma Hopkins ("Half and Half", "Family Matters") plays Nick’s mother, who isn’t happy about his marriage nor her new role as grandmother. Keesha Sharp ("Girlfriends", "Why Did I Get Married?") is Suzanne’s best friend, who has a taste for men and the finer things in life. Comedian Christian Finnegan plays Nick’s best friend and owner of a sports memorabilia store. And Ice Cube ("Boyz N The Hood"), who also serves as producer, plays a recurring role as Suzanne’s SWAT officer brother.

Good to see another sitcom on tv featuring a YBF family.  Check out the extended trailer for your exclusive First Look.

Sounds like it's going to be good. I agree with beautifuldreamer when I saw TBS, my 1st thought was how I just CAN'T get through an episode of House of Payne. That ish is NOT funny at all. www.seslichatevi.org

I cant believe that no one

I cant believe that no one has commented on the fact that the daughter on the Are We There Yet sitcom is a dude. Look, I live in Vegas and I see drag queens, transsexuals, masculine dressed lesbians, and feminine dressed gay men everyday. If that's not a boy dressed as a girl (either cause of hormone imbalance or sexual identity disorder) then my name is Patty Duke

It actually looks funny. I like all the actors and Terry was hilarious on Everybody Hates Chris. I laughed out loud at the comment about her coming to bed with her hair wrapped looking like Tyler Perry lol. But why couldn't they get the daughter a better wig or whatever that is on her head? i may not be able to focus on the show because Im so distracted by it....ughhh

I think Keesha Sharp should have been cast as the wife, Essence should have been the friend. I like Keesha's acting and I miss Girlfriends:(

I just had to comment on this

I just had to comment on this post. I am SOOOO happy to see a sitcom based on REAL LIFE families. Nowadays predominately 50% of households are of blended families. People need to see themselves on screen and get ideas on how to deal with family situations when there is now a new STEPMOM or STEPDAD in the picture. Thank you Ice Cube for the reality check! I will be watching!!!

i will watch because i love Terry Crews/Ice Cube/Telma Hopkins--she stay playing Essence Atkins mom! like someone says it is going to be weird watching Terry/Essence as husband and wife, just seems like a weird combo. but i will support it, we need more positive shows about black families on television.

Terry, Essence and Telma are

Terry, Essence and Telma are great actors. I will be watching. As far as this being like "House of Payne," they have better actors in this new show. Plus Cube does his thing with projects. I love "Meet The Browns," though. The actors and writing on there are better than House of Payne."

Terry Crews know he keep a job. He a cool dude I met him at a few Awards shows. Don't know if I can get use to Essence playing his wife. Look like he robbing the cradle.Glad they have her & Telma back together after the abrupt demise of Half & Half For that person(yeah person cuz U don't deserve ur name called) that made that derogatory remark about Tyler. If it wasn't for him TBS may have not given this very show a chance, He open the door. So shut the f--- up. Black people can act so ignorant sometimes.

So, I guess I'm the only one who didn't laugh...at all. I applaud TBS for diversifying the black programming because BET isn't getting it like I'd expect, but I thought the jokes were corny and it looked like a replica of the Tyler Perry shows. We shall see...

I was really disappointed

I was really disappointed when 'Everybody Hates Chris' and 'Half and Half' were cancelled. This show is a welcome change to the TV landscape of today. And I love Terry, especially since I've been watching the 'Family Crews'. I just hope we all watch the show so it will stay on the air! Good lookin' out Cube!

I just love Ice Cube movies he does. & I am looking forward to this show. I was wondering when Ice Cube was gonna make a comeback & start making films...

I guess it's time for me to stop dreaming of a "Half and Half" return..that show was too classy and smart. Anywho, Essence and Terry are smart comedians who can do it respectfully so I can't wait for their positive representation to air.

To see a new black show with nothing to do with Tyler Perry gay azz they act like he's the only way black shows or movie's can happen, the only thing I dnt agree with this show is essence Adkins she looks too young to have tenenage kids I guess I will have to stay tuned to find out

Sounds like a great show. At first I was a bit taken aback by the pairing of Essence Atkins and Terry Crews - I guess I still think of her in young, 20s-ish roles and Terry Crews as more of the 'dad' roles type but they are actually close in age and I like both of them as comedic actors. Always good to see positive shows with ybf folk in them!

Im sorry but Where did they get these child actors from? The lil boy has the weirdest shaped head I have ever seen & the lil girl... well im not gonna say anything ugly. And Essence is not as pretty as she used to be (on Smart Guy). The only attractive person in the show is Terry Crews
