According to the Netflix publicity, "Determined to be the best father he can be, Brian's going to need all the help he can get from his dad (David Alan Grier) and sister (Porscha Coleman) - and Sasha’s going to need all the help she can get learning how to deal with her new, lovingly chaotic."
Patterson who stepped down as showrunner ahead of start of production and was replaced by Bentley Kyle Evans.
