Plot Synopsis

After winning $500,000 dollars on a scratch-off lottery ticket, the Stallworths move from the 'hood to a middle-class neighborhood in Southern California, where this African American family works to live the dream. Whether they're looking for a missing doll on moving day or having their children, Ebony and Devin, spend several days at the grandparent's home allowing them to have a romantic weekend at home, the lucky father, Anthony, and the wise mother, Lisa, lovingly help each other and their children adjust to a new house and neighborhood -- all while keeping their family values and relationships intact. And when they're not battling each other, they are contending with a host of family, friends, and neighbors, including Tony's snobby older brother Todd and Lisa's feisty sisters Rachel and Lori, all set in the tight knit community of Windsor Hills. FAMILY TIME is the first original series launched by Bounce TV, only nine months after the channel's launch in September 2011.
