HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/5/31 – “With subjects or anything that we talk about, I just approach it from a state of observing curiosity.” says The Carmichael Show star and creator Jerrod Carmichael “I like to challenge in stand-up and in scripts, and I think that those are the conversations that I had in the black community, just that you don’t get to see a lot of times on television.”
“A lot of times you see one dimension of us, but I like to show that is a full range of disagreeing, and it’s not always a perspective that you would guess” says Carmichael. “You can’t just guess a black perspective, I think it can come from anywhere. I just want to make sure we are telling the full story.”
The Carmichael Show is inspired by the life and family of comedian Jerrod Carmichael. This North Carolina family is not afraid or uncomfortable to tackle on serious subjects about society, that most families in America have to face on a daily basis.
Jerrod always finds himself sharing his thoughts with his family about police protests, guns and religion.

Loretta Devine is Cynthia, his devoutly religious mother.
