It’s time to meet Maxine’s dad, but he’s a familiar face.

NBC's Carmichael Show to do Bill Cosby-themed episode

Comments +

NBC sitcom The Carmichael Show has proven it’s not afraid to tackle complex, topical subjects. In its six-episode run last summer, the critically praised multi-camera comedy – loosely based on the life of 28-year-old comedian Jerrod Carmichael – riffed on everything ranging from the Black Lives Matter movement to gun control to transgender acceptance.

But for the show’s second season set to launch this spring, Carmichael is pushing one of the hottest buttons in Hollywood: He has written an episode about Bill Cosby.

The Carmichael Show: EW review

Comments +
