REL on a bus bench 

Review of "REL" 9/15/18 by Eva Diaz
Premieres Sunday, 9/30 on FOX

I saw a few comercials for Rel, and it looked very funny, so I thought I would watch it to see if it would be as funny as the commercials. I enjoyed it and thought it was very funny from start to finish. The show is about Rel (L'il Rel Howery), who is trying to recover after his wife slept with his barber and then left him, taking his two kids to another state. He struggles to adjust to life without his wife and kids. His friends and family are not at all supportive, constantly reminding him that his wife is gone and rubbing salt in the wound. Sinbad plays Rel's dad, and the chemistry and comic timing between him and Rel is wonderful and worth watching.

I think this show will be a big hit for Fox and finally give viewers something to watch on Sundays that is funny. In the past, there have not been many good comedy shows to watch on Sunday. I give this show 5 out of 5 stars and encourage you to watch it if you like to laugh.

MORE INFORMATION:

REL
Sundays, 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT

Inspired by the comedy of Lil Rel Howery (“Uncle Drew,” “Get Out,” “The Carmichael Show”), REL is a multi-camera comedy starring Howery as a successful, hardworking father and husband on the West Side of Chicago, whose life is perfectly on track. That is, until he finds out his wife is having an affair with his own barber – the worst person for your wife to sleep with, because as hard as it is to find love, it’s even harder to find a good barber.

Now separated, and with his son and daughter having moved to Cleveland with their mother, Rel must begin the difficult task of rebuilding his life as a long-distance single dad. Offering Rel support are his best friend and unfiltered sounding board, BRITTANY (Jessica “Jess Hilarious” Moore, “Wild ’N Out”), and his recently out-of-jail, excitable and overly encouraging younger brother, NAT (Jordan L. Jones, “NCIS: Los Angeles”), as well as his prideful and recently widowed DAD (Sinbad, “A Different World”, “The Sinbad Show”), who finds both his sons deep disappointments.

As Rel works to repair his life, he often finds himself the victim of his own well-intentioned hubris. He is the “Icarus” of Chicago’s West Side – repeatedly flying too close to the sun and getting burned. But, ever the optimist, he always dusts himself off to try again.

REL is produced by 20th Century Fox Television. Jerrod Carmichael (“The Carmichael Show”), Mike Scully (“The Carmichael Show,” THE SIMPSONS), Howery, Josh Rabinowitz (“The Carmichael Show,” “Broad City”) and Kevin Barnett (“The Carmichael Show,” “Broad City”) are executive producers. Gerry Cohen (“The Carmichael Show,” “Married with Children”) directed the pilot.
