About the show

In this new African-American family comedy, Baneatta and Beverly attempt to put their sisterly differences aside to bury their father, Bernard.  More…

From the show:

All is well at the funeral until it's revealed that Bernard had not just two daughters, but three. Wig pins loosen, as truths emerge, leaving this African-American family to confront their skeletons head on; naturally with lots of love, shade, and prayer along the way.
