TBS has ordered an additional 90 episodes of the hit sitcom ARE WE THERE YET? following this summer’s highly successful 10-episode run. The series, which stars Terry Crews and Essence Atkins, is produced by Revolution Studios and Cube Vision and distributed by Debmar-Mercury. Revolution’s Joe Roth and Vince Totino and Cube Vision’s Ice Cube and Matt Alvarez serve as executive producers, along with award-winning show-runner Ali LeRoi. In addition to executive producing, Ice Cube plays a recurring guest starring role.
“ARE WE THERE YET? has proven itself to be an extremely strong addition to TBS’s comedy lineup,” said Michael Wright, EVP and head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “ARE WE THERE YET? attracts a young, diverse audience, making it an especially good fit for our Wednesday night slate of original sitcoms.”
In ARE WE THERE YET?, Crews and Atkins play Nick and Suzanne, a newly married couple whose blended family faces the challenges of everyday life. Teala Dunn and Coy Stewart co-star as Lindsey and Kevin, Nick and Suzanne’s 14 and 10-year-old children. Keesha Sharp (Why Did I Get Married Too?) is Suzanne’s best friend, who has a taste for men and the finer things in life. Comedian Christian Finnegan plays Nick’s best friend and owner of a sports memorabilia store. Ice Cube plays a recurring guest starring role as Suzanne’s brother.
ARE WE THERE YET? premiered June 2 as part of TBS’s enormously popular Wednesday lineup of original sitcoms.
