“A new couple and their families find themselves examining modern love and family dynamics amidst clashing cultures, societal expectations and generational differences in this comedy from Kenya Barris.”
The streaming network revealed a glimpse of how Hill and London’s characters meet:
“Ezra Cohen (Hill) accidentally gets into Amira Mohammed’s (Lauren London) car one day, mistakenly convinced that she’s his rideshare. Once she’s gotten over the shock and accepts his offer of a date, the two quickly bond over a shared love of sneakers and music. Soon, it’s clear that they’ve finally found that special someone.
“So special, in fact, that it’s time to think about merging their families. Enter Ezra’s progressive and semi-woke Jewish parents (Julia Louis-Dreyfus and David Duchovny) and Amira’s unyielding yet concerned Muslim parents (Eddie Murphy and Nia Long). The one thing they have in common? The ability to mercilessly interfere with their children’s lives — with hilarious results.”
Ezra Cohen (Hill) affirms his interest in marrying Amira Mohammed (London), only to face a barrage of questions from her parents (Eddie Murphy and Nia Long) that have him stumbling.
Ezra has finally found the love of his life in Amira, someone who truly understands him. But things get complicated when the two meet each other’s families and realise this is far from a smooth match. Will they overcome the cultural barrier or is this the end for them as a couple?
