Netflix Drops Hilarious Trailer For Wanda Sykes' 'The Upshaws'

Wanda Sykes gets her game on in a round of Twister in the first teaser for Netflix’s upcoming comedy, The Upshaws.

The series centers on Bennie Upshaw (Mike Epps), the head of a Black working class family in Indianapolis, who is a charming, well-intentioned mechanic and lifelong mess just trying his best to step up and care for his family — wife Regina (Kim Fields), their two young daughters (Khali Daniya-Renee Spraggins, Journey Christine) and firstborn son (Jermelle Simon), the teenage son (Diamond Lyons) he fathered with another woman (Gabrielle Dennis) — and tolerate his sardonic sister-in-law (Sykes), all without a blueprint for success.

But the Upshaws are determined to make it work, and make it to the next level, together.

The Upshaws was co-created by Wanda, and she and Mike also serve as executive producers.

The Upshaws will include 10 half-hour episodes and debut on Wednesday, May 12 on Netflix.
