Plot Synopsis

Created and executive produced by Regina Hicks and series star Wanda Sykes, THE UPSHAWS is a half-hour comedy series that centers a Black working class family in Indianapolis. Bennie Upshaw is a charming, well-intentioned mechanic and lifelong mess just trying his best to step up and care for his family -- wife Regina, their two young daughters and firstborn son, the teenage son he fathered with another woman -- and tolerate his sardonic sister-in-law Lucretia, all without a blueprint for success. But the Upshaws are determined to make it work, and make it to the next level, together. The entire 10-episode first season of THE UPSHAWS dropped on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 on Netflix.
